-with notes and photos from Art Bombers of Sooke
The Art Bombers have been strongly supporting the Sooke Food Bank’s Sock Drive, and they’ve enlisted the following businesses to collect socks (and much, much more). If you want to contribute, please visit one of these fine local businesses:
- Seaside Yarn and Button
- Home Hardware
- Rustic Roots
If you operate a local business and are interested in becoming a Food Bank Socks (and more) collector, email the Art Bombers directly. Individuals are welcome to send their selfies and photos of donated contributions to SPN, and we can post a gallery of the beautiful contributors in Sooke
Yarn and Button
Sarah at Seaside Yarn and Button is collecting socks, hats and scarves to send to the Food Bank’s Sock Drive. And she’ll be donating 10% of next week’s shop’s proceeds as well.
Home Hardware ‘Socks for Sooke’
Speaking of Home Hardware, they too are participating. They are located at 6626 Sooke Road, directly across the road from Seaside Yarn and Button! (Phone 250 642-6366, or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
As you can see their boxes are big enough for donations of winter coats and boots. Bring ’em in!
Kristina at Rustic Roots is collecting a wide assortment of grooming products for the Food Bank. Did you know…? Donating your opened bottles and containers is fine. Take a look for extras in your bathroom cupboards and drop them off with Kristina. Kristina is located behind The Lazy Gecko Mexican Cafe.
Got soap to spare? Kim Metzger, President of the Sooke Food Bank welcomes it all.
“What if you have limited money and you have to choose between food for your kids, or soap? What would you do?”
Kim loves receiving dish soap because of how multi-purpose it is. .
