MAC Families Donate Over 1800 Socks

This year for our winter initiative, MacLachlan organized a school-wide sock drive to gather sock donations for Socks 4 Souls Canada. Socks 4 Souls Canada is a volunteer-run organization that is committed to contributing warmth, comfort, dignity, mobility and health to people experiencing homelessness, by providing them with new, clean socks.

Since the organization began in 2015, Socks 4 Souls Canada has collected and donated over 750,000 pairs of socks in Toronto and the GTA. Socks 4 Souls’ goal is to continue to grow the distribution of socks across Canada to ensure every person experiencing homelessness has access to a pair of new socks every two weeks. MacLachlan chose this initiative as the need for socks is great, especially as the colder months approach. Socks are the most needed, but least donated item of clothing to homeless shelters so sock donations are an important resource to homeless shelters and outreach services that share the desire to improve the quality of life of homeless communities.

Thank you to all MacLachlan families who participated in this year’s initiative – with your help, 1802 socks were donated during our drive! A special thank you to the Grade 6 students who sorted, counted and packaged all the socks to be sent off to Socks 4 Souls.

We are happy to announce the winning house with 478 donated socks was Sumner, followed closely by Chisholm with 465!
