Our bins are now out at several locations for sock donations: we have two at the Royal LePage Team Realty office at # 200, 1335 Carling, one on the main level and one on the second level. We have a bin at our Royal LePage Team Realty office in Barrhaven, located at 3101 Strandherd Drive. We’re open weekday evenings until 8 PM and weekends until 4 PM. We have a friendly competition between these two offices to see which office can get the most pairs of socks donated!
If you drop off a new pair of socks at either location, you can be entered in a draw for some great prizes including:
This gorgeous framed photograph from local photographer, Nancy Mooney:
A gift certificate to Host India Restaurant:
A wide assortment of children’s and YA books donated by Simon and Schuster Canada (we will draw these in groups of four):
A gorgeous woman’s wrap in Dress Stewart Plaid donated by Popolo Design:
A book of car wish tickets from John Newcombe Island Park Esso;
A $ 200 Floral Envy gift basket donated by Proof Strategies (with thanks to Greg MacEachern)!
We also anticipate receiving a donated original painting by Bruce Anderson, so be sure to get those socks in — these are great prizes! And a big warm shout-out to our very generous donors!
Our other sock drop-off locations include a shared bin at Freshii Westboro (which is accepting Food Bank donations as well). We have a drop off bin at Churchill Seniors Recreation Centre at 345 Richmond Road and MP/ Environment Minister Catherine McKenna’s constituency office at 107 Catherine Street has one too.
All our socks will go to our neighbours in need. Men’s socks will go to Shepherds of Good Hope and the Ottawa Mission and women’s and children’s socks will go to Parkdale Food Centre’s Soup and Socks Program. So swing by with some new socks and help us give the gift of warmth this winter!
