Put a Sock In It ‘Sauga  

This year marks the second year of Put a Sock on it ‘Sauga ; a sock drive coordinated through the Open Window Hub. In last year’s campaign they collected over 1,000 pairs of socks that were distributed through the Open Window Hub as well as to local shelters and organizations working with individuals experiencing homelessness across the city. Socks are the most requested item at shelters and the campaign is a way of helping meet the needs of some of our community’s most vulnerable individuals. The Library has set a goal to collect 1,500 pairs of socks during this campaign. Donations will be accepted at all libraries across the city until the end of February.  For information on last years sock drive, please click here .
