Socks For Change
We are a non-profit organization who’s goal is to provide warm, wool socks and other warm winter gear to those less fortunate in our community.
Over 76,000 Niagara residents live below the poverty line. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness about this growing epidemic in our community, and provide as many socks as possible to those in need in Niagara before the winter season.
The socks we donate are 70% wool; they absorb a high amount of moisture, wicking wetness away from the body to ensure dry, warm feet. Wool also keeps its insulating properties even when wet, unlike cotton, and dries twice as fast.
Not only are we providing warmth to the less fortunate, we are also creating jobs in our community, through our knitting partner, McMormack Textiles.
