Socks For Santa

For those of you who don’t know, each holiday season, TLABC’s Public Affairs Committee (PAC) collects new or gently used, clean socks for Santa to give to the First United Downtown Eastside shelter.

Over the past few years, we have had the opportunity to get to know the directors of the shelter and tour the facilities, and the work that they do for the less-fortunate of our province is truly outstanding and inspiring!

They provide 60 beds each night (40 for men and 20 for women), an address for guests to use for job searches, as well as social programming, meals and a foot care program.  Keeping your feet warm, dry and protected can be challenging in this rainy city, and they often run out of socks, especially during the busy holiday season.

Each year, our membership enjoys sending in packages of socks and goodies, along with donations towards the purchase of supplies – and we take great pleasure in our annual delivery day!

We are so proud of this small gesture we can make to help support BC citizens and we are always thrilled at the generosity of our legal community.  #TLABCCares

Please consider participating in one of the following ways:

1) Send or drop off your new or gently used socks to:

1111 – 1100 Melville St.
Vancouver, BC V6E 4A6

 2) Pledge to donate $5 – $100 (or more!) towards the purchase of socks & supplies for the shelter.

3) Bring your socks to an upcoming seminar/event, the AGM or the Holiday Bash on Friday, December 7th, 2018!

Socks For Santa is BACK!!

web-104337178

‘Tis (almost) the season, which means it’s time, once again, for our ‘Socks For Santa’ holiday campaign!!

This holiday season, TLABC’s Public Affairs Committee (PAC) will again be collecting new or gently used, clean socks to give to the First United Downtown Eastside Shelter.

The shelter provides 60 beds each night– space for 40 men and 20 women. This is one of the largest and busiest shelters in Vancouver.  Each day they provide their clients with foot baths/foot care, as well as provide them with a clean pair of dry socks. Keeping your feet warm, dry and protected can be quite challenging in this rainy city, and the shelter often runs out of socks and supplies.

Please help out by participating in one of the following ways:

 1) Send or drop off your new or gently used socks to:
1111 – 1100 Melville St.
Vancouver, BC V6E 4A6

2) Bring your socks to the Fairmont Waterfront for the Medical Legal seminar, the AGM or the Holiday Bash at the Stanley Park Pavilion on Friday, December 1st, 2017!

3) Make a pledge towards the purchase of socks for the shelter.

 To make a pledge, or for more info please contact megan@tlabc.org or call the TLABC office:
