Last month during Community Living Month, the Clements Centre Society launched its seventh Annual Sock Drive.

The goal this year is to collect 2,015 new pairs of socks, which are then given back to others in the community who can use them. Socks have gone to many agencies in the Cowichan Valley in the past, including Cowichan Lodge, Margaret Moss Health Centre, the Salvation Army, Warmland House Shelter, and the North Cowichan Fire Department.

You can donate socks for all ages and genders. Debbie Oliwa of the Clements Centre (250-746-4135 ext. 226) can provide more information or arrange to pick up any donations.

Cash donations that can be used to purchase socks are also accepted.
