Sock it to me!

In the thirty seconds that it took for me to lock my back door and walk to my garage (ungloved) this morning, I came *this* close to losing a finger or two. (Ok, that might be a tiny exaggeration, but holy Dinah, it is COLD out there today!)

Later, as I was driving to work with my heated seats cranked(and cozy mittens on), I was thinking about how much it would suck to not have proper winter gear, and how lucky I am to have the means to be able to afford the necessities (as well as a few little luxuries).

Unfortunately, there are members of our community who are out there braving the elements without even the most basic winter clothing and suitable accessories, and we can help to make the season a little more tolerable for them. Until December 19th, we will be collecting warm socks and waterproof gloves and mittens, to be distributed to the guests of Agape Table, and we are calling on our customers and friends to help us.

Please bring in your donation of new, warm socks and gloves/mittens on or before Sunday, December 19th. Each pair donated will earn you an entry into a draw for a handmade sock monkey courtesy of “Everything is ticketyboo!”, which will be delivered just in time for Christmas! Although you will receive only one ballot per pair of socks or gloves, there is no limit to the number of times you can enter the draw, so feel free to donate one pair or ten!

  1. Keep up the good work!

    Check out to see how my little ones are making a big difference with this exact same idea. We've donated over 1000 pairs of socks, many to individual people we've met, at Agape Table and other places around Winnipeg.
