SOX IN A BOX CAMPAIGN RETURNS FOR SECOND YEAR

MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 22, 2017 – Students and staff from Rosemount High School and Nesbitt Elementary School in Rosemount, as well as Dalkeith Elementary School in Anjou, are once again collecting socks for Montreal’s homeless community.

Dubbed the “Sox in a Box” campaign, students will donate new socks to: The West Island Women's Shelter, Dans La Rue, Chez Doris and The Benedict Labre House. Each school will also create personalized holiday gift boxes containing the new socks and bilingual messages of hope for the holiday season.

The campaign will culminate on December 12 (9:30 am to 2:45 pm) when students and staff from each school will come together at Rosemount High School (3737 Beaubien) to personally gift-wrap each donation and enjoy a holiday lunch. 

In 2016, over 1,000 pairs of socks were collected.
