Sock drive en­ters sec­ond year

Prince Albert Daily Herald - - OPINION - DAILY HER­ALD STAFF

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.”
