The BSM is excited to kick off the “Warm the Sole Sock Drive” on November 1st – our annual fundraiser which collects socks for the Scott Mission. Socks are one of the first items people request when asking for assistance and are a staple of basic care for the homeless. For the whole month of November, visitors to the BSM are encouraged to bring a new pair of unworn socks for distribution to those in need. If you make a donation on a Saturday or Sunday during the drive you can visit the BSM for FREE that day. There will also be a fun sock-themed craft available for kids, drop-in until 4pm on weekends.
The BSM’s goal for each year is to provide enough socks to last the Scott Mission throughout the winter months. Did you know that socks are the most needed and least donated item of clothing? Help us to give the gift of warmth to our community!
