Hello again, I have taken a little break… ok, a BIG break. After my Bar Mitzvah, which was a year ago, I stopped collecting socks and focused my time on giving them out for a while. Now, I have a couple of bags, filled with socks, left. I still help out at Food Not Bombs. Now I am ready to launch “1,000 Socks 2.0”. I will try to collect more socks, with more boxes, go to more places to give them out to more people. Yes, that is a lot, but I am up for it. It is our responsibility to help more people and “repair the world”.
My friend, Zoe from FNB, told me about another great place to give the socks out to some people who really need them. My dad drove me to James Bute Park near downtown yesterday morning. There were lots of people there who were sharing food. We met a nice man there who allowed us to use his table to put our sock container on. Before we left, he gave out nearly all the socks we brought with us. It was a fun and heart-warming experience and I plan to go back there with even more socks!
I received 17 pairs from Brith Shalom. Thank you so much!!!!!
My friend, Allison, donated 29 pairs of socks!
