"SOX IN THE BOX"
A VISIONING WORKING GROUP
OUTREACH PROJECT

It's a few months into the New Year and we are once again in need of replenishing our sock supply for the "Sox in the Box" Outreach project.
In our church family, we are all privileged to wear clean, dry, warm socks throughout the whole year. New socks mean so much - warmth, comfort, better health and self-esteem, the list goes on. Socks are the most requested, and yet least donated item to those in need. Happier feet make for happier people.
Please put a pair or two of new, warm socks, any size, any colour, any style in your shopping cart and place them in the "Sox in the Box" collection boxes located beside the Food Bank containers in the back of the sanctuary or at the back entrance of the church.
Thank you in advance for your donations!!
