On January 1st, 2016, the first day of the new year, Thank You Toronto visited our Give Back Partner Covenant House with our friends The Northern Beard Company. Together we dropped off 400 pairs of brand new warm socks to help the Homeless Youth stay a little warmer this season.
Most articles of clothing donated are items one no longer wants or needs. Socks are often forgotten, resulting in the least donated article of clothing. As feet become the main source of losing body heat, a good pair of warm brand new socks is imperative to fighting cold weather.
In case you didn't know, we worked together with The Northern Beard Company this past summer to provide much needed grocery items to a local shelter. It was a successful campaign after the Toronto Beard & Facial Hair Club invited us our to their annual Toronto competition where the proceeds would help feed Toronto's Homeless.
