Socktober 2019


Howay Helping Hands is super excited to start our local fundraiser: SOCKTOBER!!

We will be collecting new adult sized socks to donate to The Lookout Society shelter in New Westminster.


With the cooler weather and rainy days ahead socks are in great demand at local shelters.  We want to make a difference to those in our community by donating lots of socks!!!

Our goal is to collect 500 pairs of new adult sized socks and our super goal is to collect 800 pairs.  Socktober will run for the month of October and will conclude on October 31, 2019.


Tables are set up in the hallway near the office – please drop off your socks there.
