Several local libraries within the Chinook Arch Regional Library system, including the Claresholm Public Library, Pincher Creek Municipal Library, Taber Public Library, the Jim and Mary Kearl Library of Cardston, recently held a Socktober sock drive, during which 1,266 pairs of socks were collected.

The Jim and Mary Kearl Library in Cardston believes in community engagement activities and that working together makes us all stronger. Cardston managed the sock drive event, and organizers were extremely pleased with the response.

The Cardston library received great support for their sock drive. The Cardston Elementary, Cardston Junior High and Cardston High School all participated, as well as Training Inc., the Alberta Mental Health Office, Jodi’s Dance Academy, Carriage Lane Market, Extra Foods, the Parent Link Center, Town of Cardston Library Board and the Cardston Community Band.

Socks were divided and distributed to the Blood Tribe FCSS, United Way Canada and Streets Alive Mission. >

Remember, it is never too late to donate to community programs. They are remarkable and help a lot of people. There are many ways to donate.

Just in time for the winter season, men, women and children will enjoy new socks.

The next Socktober event will be held in October 2020.
