Sock Donations Wanted for Siloam Mission

Siloam Mission, 300 Princess Street (HANDOUT)

Siloam Mission will benefit from a sock drive this month at the hands of the Cardinal Foundation.

The fourth annual drive is aiming to collect new and gently worn men’s winter socks to help keep clients of the downtown homeless shelter warm this winter.

Clothing retailer Mark’s has thrown their support behind the drive, which runs November 12-23.

Donations of socks can be made at all Winnipeg Mark’s locations, Cardinal Capital Management (400-1780 Wellington Avenue), Yoga Public (280 Fort Street) and Serratus Personal Training (#11-1700 Corydon Avenue).

Clothing producer McGregor has already contributed 2,500 pairs of socks towards the 5,000 pair goal. Any cash donations received will buy new socks and underwear for those that rely on Siloam Mission.
