‘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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call the TLABC office:

#TLABCCares is dedicated to keeping our less-fortunate safe and dry this holiday season!
