West Kootenay sock drive a success

Letter from West Kootenay EDA for the Green Party of Canada

The West Kootenay EDA (Electoral District Association) for the Green Party of Canada partnered with local organizations to collect new socks to be distributed to people in need this past December.

Approximately 250 pairs of socks were collected in Trail, Rossland, and Penticton last month and distributed to people in need through local organizations including La Niña Shelter and Keep off the Cold Penticton.

Big thanks goes out to Better Life Fitness (Rossland), Gerick Sports (Trail), and Jak’s and Localmotive (Penticton) for collecting the donated socks.

The South Okanagan-West Kootenay EDA is planning a toque and gloves drive for February, so start knitting!

For more information, contact the following local volunteers: Kootenays, Tara Howse, tara.howse@greenparty.ca; Okanagan, Sharon Wieder, sharon.wieder@greenparty.ca.
