Sock Donations Welcome at All Canvas Locations through December

Canvas Credit Union Sock Drive Warms Homeless Hearts and Soles

LONE TREE, CO (November 19, 2018) — Warm feet equals warm hearts for Colorado’s homeless, and Canvas Credit Union is asking local communities to turn up the heat by donating socks through December 16, 2018.

The credit union’s annual sock drive has grown over the last two years. “Last year we more than doubled the pairs of socks donated,” said Malcolm Johnson, Canvas Credit Union’s Director of Public Relations and Community Involvement. “It truly was heartwarming to deliver more than 7,200 pairs of socks to local homeless shelters.”

Why donate socks? According to the Salvation Army, socks are the #1 most requested clothing item. New and gently used socks may be dropped off at any of Canvas’ 26 convenient branch locations through December 16, 2018. To find your nearby Canvas branch and get directions, visit canvas.org/locations.

The Canvas team will be delivering donated socks to the following Colorado shelters:
• Denver Rescue Mission
• Loveland House of Neighborly Services
• Greeley Transitional House
• Homeward Alliance in Fort Collins

“We want to bring even more pairs of socks to the shelters this year,” said Johnson. “With the help of our Colorado communities and Canvas members, I think we can!”
