Socktober 2022

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 100 pairs of new adult sized socks and our super goal is to collect 200 pairs of socks.Socktober will begin October 3, 2022 and will conclude October 31, 2022.

Update October 31, 2022

Socktober has officially ended and we surpassed our MEGA goal of 500 pairs of adult socks!!! Our final total is 595!!!

Mrs. Phelan tried her luck at guessing the candy in the 5 bags at our assembly on Monday Oct 31 and once she made two incorrect guesses, she then was SLIMED!!! The crowd cheered and jumped and celebrated.  Mrs. Phelan is one amazing principal. She even had her hair coloured pink and in a new style the following day to celebrate surpassing our MEGA goal!

Thank you to all Howay Helping Hands that made this success possible. The collected socks will be taken to The Lookout Society in New Westminster next week. The Lookout Society is so grateful we have completed another successful Socktober!!
