Their “Feet First: SOCKS for the Needy” campaign helps keep people a little warmer over the winter. The socks are distributed through First United Church Mission (Vancouver) and Yonge Street Mission (Toronto), both of which run foot care clinics in the core downtown areas where hundreds of people living in tough circumstances receive treatment for foot issues.
Check it out and be GOOD!
