Main Street Project is excited to launch its first ever SOCKTOBER!!
As you may know, Winnipeg has been experiencing a chilly autumn so far. In anticipation of the coming winter months, we are asking for help in collecting 10,000 pairs of donated socks during the month of October.
We want to ensure that we can always provide our community members with a clean, dry, cozy pair of socks. Those experiencing homelessness are at risk of feet related health issues, and these risks only increase with cold, damp weather. Having a clean, dry pair of socks is essential to keeping feet healthy.
The good news is that you don’t even have to leave your house to help us out – you can easily purchase socks from our Amazon Wish List and the purchase will be mailed right to our door! You can view MSP’s Amazon Wish List here: http://a.co/056hVrw
We will happily accept new or gently used socks.
If you are looking for more information on how you can help Main Street Project reach our goal of collecting 10,000 pairs of socks during the month of October, please contact our Volunteer and Community Engagement Coordinator, Jenn, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 204-982-8242.
