It’s the third annual Sock it to Christmas sock drive! We have five drop off bins in Ottawa this year. These are located as follows:
Royal LePage Team Realty, at 1335 Carling, Suite 200 (my office!)
Royal LePage Team Realty, 3101 Strandherd Drive, Barrhaven
Catherine McKenna’s constituency office, 107 Catherine Street (downtown)
St. James Anglican Church (Bank and Leitrim), and
Churchill Seniors Recreation Centre, Richmond Road (enter from Churchill).
I took this picture of the bin at my office on Sunday: it’s almost full now!
We can only accept new socks but we encourage donors to consider donating women’s and children’s socks as well as men’s socks. The men’s socks will go to the Ottawa Mission. Women’s and children’s socks will go to the Parkdale Food Centre Soup and Socks program.
If you drop off a donation at my office (200, 1335 Carling), your name will be entered in a draw for this fabulous gift basket, donated by Proof Strategies, and for a framed photograph by local photographer, Nancy Mooney (best known on Twitter as @NancyFromCanada!).
Last year we collected almost 2100 pairs of socks – so help us give the gift of warm this year and Sock it to Christmas!
