The Canton community is encouraged to participate in this nationwide campaign, "Socktober," presented by www.soulpancake.com with support from internet sensation Kid President, also known as 10-year-old Robby Novak. Established in 2013, October campaigns are currently being held in every state and have even expanded around the globe with its goal of having two million people prove that even the smallest acts of kindness, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of the homeless.
Show you care and donate a new pair today! To learn more about the Canton Leisure Services "October" project or to donate new socks or to make a monetary donation for the purchase of new socks, please call 734/394-5460.
