300 socks donated to the homeless
AthElite Basketball and Your City Sports have donated 300 pairs of new socks to The Front Room 24-hour drop-in centre in Whalley.
Aman Heran, director of AthElite Basketball, ordered custom-made socks for his basketball program from Your City Sports, which were delivered in mid-April.
Your City Sports is a newly established company that makes athletic socks with city skyline logos, and custom-made socks.
For every pair they sell, the company donates a pair of socks to a homeless charity in that community.
Wes Everaars, Director of Development at Keys Housing & Health Solutions helped to distribute the socks to the homeless in Surrey.
Your City Sports was conceived in 2013 while working at an event for the homeless where they learned that clean socks are one of the biggest needs for people living on the streets. Your City Sports has donated more than 2,500 pairs of socks to various charities in the Lower Mainland in the past four months.
