JOY-Full Socks

Joy Full Socks

Hello everyone, the “JOY-Full” Socks 2020 campaign has been launched!

To begin, I appreciate everything you have done to support this charity through the years.

Due to the kind generosity and support of all involved, JOY-Full Socks has had nine very successful years. Together, we have donated over 20,000 pairs of socks, plus grooming products and much more, to those in need at multiple charity locations in our community.

Due to Covid-19 I know this charity will run differently this year. Just gathering my “elves” together for packing the boxes of donations will be a challenge. A challenge I have to meet and overcome, because I know the need is much greater this year due to this pandemic. Some donations may change to financial, where my elves and I will do the product purchasing, and that too, will work just fine.

I also appreciate that due to restrictions the manner in which the charity will run in your school will be different this year. Any way you can make it work will be greatly appreciated. If you need to contact me to discuss ideas, please do not hesitate.

For those that are new to this initiative, it’s an easy way to get involved in helping those in need. It’s as simple as purchasing socks and/or grooming products. The socks and grooming products can be for a particular gender or age group. You can fill the socks or place your donation into a gift bag. Use your imagination and have fun!

Another easy part of this campaign is the “door to door” pick-up. I will pick up your donation at your home/work and deliver it to the charities. You can contact me via email or phone, as soon as your donation is ready. The earlier the better, as my “elves” need lots of time putting the packages together.

My plan is to have all donations picked up by November 20th, with delivery to the charities the following Friday, November 27th.

If you wish to invite your family and friends to join in this campaign, please do so.

It would be appreciated if you can reply with your intention of participation; this would be helpful in my scheduling.

Thank-you all, God bless,

Leslie Cassidy-Amadio
