Students seek socks for homeless

Teens and young adults in the Pathway Project are on the hunt for socks for the homeless.

Teens and young adults in the Pathway Project are on the hunt for socks for the homeless.

The Langford-based youth employment service is looking to assemble 500 pairs of new socks to donate to Our Place in Victoria. Such simple and relatively inexpensive donations are what is needed most for people living on the street or in shelters.

“We always go on that tour (of Our Place) so the youth have more compassion,” said Randy Waldie, who runs the Pathway Project with Jennifer Harrison.

Pathway Project is accepting socks at its office from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays until Dec. 23, at 101-847 Goldstream Ave., behind the Tim Hortons.

The WorkLink Employment Society office at 2234 Sooke Rd. is also accepting socks.
