Everybody likes to have warm, dry, happy feet.
When you or someone on your gift list enjoys a snuggly pair of beautiful hand-knit wool socks bought from the Comox Valley Sock It To ‘Em Project, each of your simple sock purchases provides up to 10 pairs of high quality store-bought socks for someone who is homeless or in need in our community.
All proceeds from the sale of hand-knit socks go toward buying store-bought socks, which are then distributed to the homeless and others in need by community organizations including the Care-A-Van, the Comox Valley’s Bay Care Society’s volunteer mobile heath-care unit, the only service of its kind west of Calgary.
In the Comox Valley Sock It To ‘Em Project’s first year of operation over 600 pairs of socks have been distributed throughout the community to those dealing with homelessness.
Just look for the baskets of colourful socks at Sock It To ‘Em Sale Days held at Zocalo Café at the corner of Cliffe and 5th Street between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 6; Friday, Nov. 7 and Saturday, Nov. 8.
We have a selection of the hand-knit socks in adult sizes and a more limited supply of baby and children’s sizes.
For the best selection drop by Zocalo Café at your earliest convenience.
All socks are machine washable and nylon reinforced so will wear well. Each pair is $35 (cash only please) in adult sizes and less for the smaller sizes.
Get in touch if you’re a sock-knitter who might enjoy knitting for our project or if you represent a non-profit community organization that is interested in distributing items to those in need.
