Brescia is holding a student-led sock drive to help keep communities warm from coast-to-coast.
Amanda Phillips and Larissa Valentine are running the national CAFP sock drive this year. They received a total of 3,700 pairs of donations last winter and are hoping to raise over 8,000 this year.
The sock drive originally began at the Toronto CAFP branch in 2012, with the goal of collecting socks for community shelters around Toronto. This year marks a milestone since it’s the first year that CAFP student branches nationwide are participating in the friendly-competitive initiative.
Brescia students will work in partnership with London’s CAFP student branch and Unity Project, a homeless shelter in London, to donate socks to those who need it throughout the city.
The drive began January 1st and officially wraps up on March 31st.
