Sock drive enters second year
The Salvation Army and Saskatchewan’s Chiropractors are once again teaming up to help keep people warm this winter.
For the second consecutive year, the two organizations are holding a sock drive for vulnerable residents. The chiropractors are hoping to collect 12,000 pairs of socks throughout the province. Donations of new pairs and packages of socks will be accepted at Chiropractic clinics until November 24.
The socks will be distributed in partnership with the Salvation Army.
“Saskatchewan chiropractors believe that no one should have to suffer through the province’s coldest months without socks on their feet,” The Chiropractors’ Association of Saskatchewan said in a press release.
“Socks are an incredibly important item for those trying to navigate the harsh winters in Saskatchewan.”
Agencies that support individuals and families can never have too many pairs of quality socks.
“We are incredibly grateful for the Toast Toes Sock Drive,” said Heather Hedstrom, Donor and Community Relations Advisor with the Salvation Army in a press release.
“Community initiatives like this assist those in need, of all ages, not only in the cold season but year round.”
“Saskatchewan chiropractors believe that the health of all Saskatchewan residents is vital, no matter their social or financial standing,” said Dr. Kevin Henbid, president of the Chiropractors’ Association of Saskatchewan in a press release. “Our community is proud to rally around this cause.”
