Monday January 9th

Avodah and the Victoria Cool Aid organized an event at Anawim House to mark the 9th year of McGregor Socks donations—totalling over 70,000 socks. At the event, Michael Bloomfield discussed community-building through socks fundraising and logistical coordination, and three local service groups shared stories of the work they do in Victoria and the impact of handing someone in need a pair of warm, dry socks. 

We talked about how this project is about socks, and also about community collaboration and sharing—from the organization of the project, to the collaborative distribution of the socks to 30 local community agencies. Three socks recipient agencies attended the event: CARTS Outreach, the Victoria Youth Clinic and Anawim House.
