Sock It to ‘Em Project thanks the Valley

The Comox Valley Sock It To ‘Em Project would like to say thank you to the people of the Comox Valley.  Because of your generosity and support we sold  more than 25 pair of our colourful hand-knit socks at our Sale days at Zocalo Café.

With those funds 280 pair of socks and 30 pair of gloves have now been purchased to be distributed to those in our community challenged by homelessness or living in difficult circumstances. As a man dealing with homelessness said: “A pair of socks can make the biggest difference in the world.”

Handling distribution are the Nursing Centre and the Comox Valley Bay Care Society’s Care-A-Van, our local volunteer mobile health care unit.  This brings the total of socks (and gloves) donated to over 900 pairs in our first full year of operation.

Help still needed

Are you an experienced sock knitter who would like to contribute your skill to this not-for-profit project?  Knit one pair or knit many pairs – your yarn will be supplied.
