People News: April Watts, new Managing Director

Dear Community Member,

On behalf of Socks 4 Souls Canada’s Board of Directors, I am thrilled to announce the recent appointment of April Watts as our new Managing Director.

April has committed her career to helping Canadian communities and comes to us with broad experience and knowledge of the not-for-profit sector. As Managing Director of Socks 4 Souls Canada, she will help us build and execute a forward-looking plan to support the growth of our organization and increase our impact on the lives of people experiencing homelessness.

 “I am so inspired by this grassroots, mainly volunteer-run organization and the incredible impact Socks 4 Souls Canada has had in the GTA and beyond in the past 8 years”, said April. “It is amazing what a dedicated group of caring people can accomplish and I could not be more excited to join you all in making a difference in our communities.”

We sincerely thank you for your continued interest and support of Socks 4 Souls Canada’s mission to provide unhoused people with warmth, comfort, dignity, mobility and health through new socks. With over 1 million socks distributed to approximately 150 shelters and organizations in the GTA and across Ontario to date, the demand for socks and our support, unfortunately, continues to grow.

Please join me in welcoming April to our community.


Dr. Christine Tang
