The Red Sock Project in Vancouver

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

As temperatures dip below freezing and beyond, thoughts turn to those on Vancouver’s streets and their need to keep warm this winter. Nood in Gastown has launched a campaign along with the Salvation Army that will supply Vancouver’s less fortunate with at the very least, a warm pair of socks.

Nood customers are invited to participate in The Red Sock Project by purchasing a pair of wool socks for $2 in-store or online. Socks purchased in-store will be delivered to the local Salvation Army who will distribute them throughout Vancouver. This is a simple way to help out — especially if you live or work in the area, or can spare just a few minutes to click the online donation button.

You can follow @NoodDesign and @SalvationArmy on Twitter for updates this season. Nood locations in the Lower Mainland include 151 Water Street in Gastown, #10 – 20070 Langley By-Pass, 500-801 Marine Drive in North Vancouver, and 4568 Kingsway in Burnaby.
