Comox Valley’s Sock It To ‘Em Project returns for eighth year

Project provides clothing for homeless in our community

For its eighth year in operation the Comox Valley Sock It To ‘Em project is again offering beautiful locally hand-knit socks for sale.

As usual, all proceeds go toward purchasing socks and other needed items for our Valley’s homeless community to be distributed by organizations including the Comox Valley Bay Care Society’s Care-A-Van and AVI Health & Community Services.

“As part of a different buying experience this time around because of the need for pandemic awareness, we are starting our sock sales earlier,” explained project lead Roberta DeDoming.

For details about arranging to privately and safely browse, select and purchase socks, you are invited to contact the project manager Roberta directly at her email address: rodedo@shaw.ca or text 250-218-7501. If you text, please identify yourself.

Available is the usual colourful selection of adult-sized socks ($35 per pair) plus ‘Cutie-Patootie Baby Booties’ ($10 piggy-backed with other purchases $15 if your only purchase) plus a limited selection of children’s socks and wool-free adult sizes. Think early holiday shopping. You will be supporting a not-for-profit community project and helping to keeping everyone warm as that chill in the air is definitely creeping up on us. For cash-free convenience, you are invited to use your Debit card with just a tap.

If you prefer a downtown shopping experience, Cardero’s Cafe (Fifth Street in Courtenay) has generously offered to keep a basket of Sock It To ‘Em socks available at the till.
