104.3 Fresh Radio, 96.3 BIG FM and SOCKS, need your help. Socktober has returned, and we want to help collect as many socks as possible for SOCKS. We will be accepting brand new pairs of socks at our studios at 170 Queen St. all throughout the month of October.
Every month more than 800,000 Canadians rely on Food banks, and SOCKS are one of the most needed and least donated items to these facilities. SOCKS are more than an article of clothing to those who have so little. They offer warmth, health, a symbol that someone is looking out for them, ownership, and pride. SOCKS make the forgotten poor feel wanted and loved again. All SOCKS stay in the community where they are collected.
Last year we collected over 10,000 pairs of socks throughout the month of October. This year, we want to surpass last year’s total. Are you ready Kingston? We are issuing a challenge to all classrooms and businesses. The classroom and business that collects the most socks will win a pizza party for up to 30 people thanks to Gabriel Pizza.
**There are two prizes to be won. Each prize includes- 6 pizzas per prize and 30 drinks.**
