Socks

What would a pile with 27, 797 pairs of socks look like?

Leslie Bullock reports that “thanks to the 800 associates and ReMax Real Estate staff members, across 16 offices, a record setting 27,797 pairs of socks were packed into seven trucks and delivered to the Good Shepherd yesterday to be delivered to the homeless across Ontario.

Bullock adds that over 20% of medical problems experienced by homeless people are related to foot care. Since walking is the primary form of transportation for the homeless, clean socks help promote good foot care and enable them to better access food, shelter, medical and housing services.
