Customers at Carlingwood Shopping Centre can play Santa this Christmas!

A new initiative seeks donations of new warm socks for people in need staying in shelters this Christmas season. The initiative is called Socks from Santa and it will benefit The Ottawa Mission, Cornerstone Women’s Shelter, The Shepherds of Good Hope,  The YMCA YWCA shelter and Ottawa Youth Services Bureau.

Donors are invited to take a tag off of the Christmas Tree in Carlingwood Shopping Centre’s food court, buy one or more pairs of cotton or wool socks for the charity described on the tag, and bring the unwrapped socks back to lay under the Christmas tree before December 21st.

The socks will be sorted and brought to the charities before Christmas Day.
