As the mercury drops, we become acutely aware of just how bitterly cold our Canadian winters can be. Now imagine confronting the chill without socks.

Socks are one of the most needed and least donated items of clothing in homeless shelters. Recognizing the need, the Barrhaven Legion issued a call to action, inviting members of the community to donate 5000 pairs. As it turns out, we live in a pretty incredible community. Over 7000 pairs were donated, far exceeded the initial goal. Tubman Funeral Homes is proud to have been a part of this initiative by featuring donation boxes at our Westboro and Garden locations.

We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who participated- you made a tremendous difference to a lot of people.
