Because every soul is precious. While the holiday season has looked different to us for the last couple of years, our homeless community continues to face a different reality. The cold weather brings many challenges to those living on the streets. This year, we are partnering with Union Gospel Mission to help meet some of the needs of the community on the Downtown Eastside. We are collecting brand new socks for Socks for Souls. Drop off your brand-new socks in the bin located in the church lobby on Sundays or during office hours (Monday-Thursday, 9am-4pm).  All sock donations are due by November 21st. Please tell your friends and family so that our impact can reach further.

Join the Socks for Souls Challenge! Who will donate the most socks?? It's Kids vs. Youth vs. Adults. For every pair of socks you donate, move a popsicle stick into your team's container by the bin. Don't let those other guys win!! The real winners, of course, are the folks on the DTES who will receive your socks. 

If you have questions about Socks for Souls, please contact Lynne Bernat (vlbernat@eastlink.ca).
