Indie88’s Socks for the Streets – Help us get 300,000 pairs of socks!

For the last six years, Indie88 and Socks 4 Souls Canada teamed up during the holiday season and collected thousands of socks from the good people of the GTA. This year, we want to do it again! Help us collect 300,000 pairs of socks for Toronto’s unhoused individuals.

Join Indie88 with Socks 4 Souls Canada on Friday, December 15th and Saturday, December 16th at Cadillac Fairview Mall as we host our 7th annual Socks for the Streets event.  We’ll be broadcasting live all-day collecting your new, unused adult sock and monetary donations.  We’ll be located by Guest Services on the second level near entrance 4.

Socks 4 Souls Canada is a primarily volunteer based organization that helps provide warmth, comfort and mobility by distributing new socks for Toronto’s unhoused population. According to a 2018 census, there are over 8,700 homeless individuals in the streets in Toronto. Nearly 20% of their medical ailments are related to poor foot care, which significantly impedes their ability to access food, shelter, and other social resources. Socks 4 Souls Canada procures both sock and monetary donations from school and workplace sock drive, corporations, businesses, and private citizens, and distributes them to agencies who work directly with those who are experiencing homelessness across southwestern Ontario. Click here to watch the Socks for The Streets Video.
