Back to Basics Sock & Underwear Drive

Posted on February 19, 2019

SHIFT and Leadership Thunder Bay are Going Back to Basics!

Everyday necessities like socks and underwear are not typically given much thought but for approximately 3000 people in our community, these simple essentials can provide much-needed warmth and comfort. SHIFT and Leadership Thunder Bay have launched a drive to gather donations of new socks and underwear for babies, children, teenagers and adults during the month of February.

For the entire month of February, donate unused socks and underwear to help over 3000 men, women and children in Thunder Bay! SHIFT and Leadership Thunder Bay will be at the Walmart on Dawson Road Saturday, February 9th from 10am to 2pm and at the Walmart on Memorial on Saturday, February 23rd from 10am to 4pm to collect unused socks and underwear.
