Did you know that new socks can protect a vulnerable individual’s health?
For individuals experiencing extreme poverty and homelessness, foot problems caused by ill-fitting or worn-out shoes, wet shoes, and lack of hygiene can become a breeding ground for infections. When walking is your primary mode of transportation, foot care is essential to your overall health. In fact 65% of the homeless population report foot health as a common concern.
In an effort to reduce hallway healthcare, foot health is a priority among Toronto’s most vulnerable.
A #SocksForHope donation will supplement our urgent need for new socks. To protect the health and safety of our vulnerable neighbours during the pandemic, clean socks are a necessity.
