Seniors Launched the Sock Drive Globally

October 2 we had a big Launch Party for the Sock Granny Sock Drive for the homeless supported by seniors who put a great deal of effort into coming because they care about our neighbors - the homeless.

Molly, from MPA-Society.org , was our guest speaker. She arrived with her special "unisex Boutonniere" - a sock. A shocking fact she shared was homeless women have increased from 2% to 30% of the homelessness in Vancouver, BC She explained in detail why the homeless need socks. It made me cringe and made all of us determined to help as much as we can.

The Seniors at Terraces on 7th all contributed either socks and cash to start the Sock Drive season off generously.

We challenge all seniors to "give socks" to the Sock Granny for immediate delivery to the homeless through Molly at MPA-Society or to a homeless resource centre near where you live.

Drop off locations are listed on The Sock Granny Blog. http://sock-granny.blogspot.ca/
