The Langley Minor Lacrosse Association and Your City Sports teamed up to donate 160 pairs of new socks to The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope homeless shelter in Langley.

The association had ordered custom-made socks for their seven-on-seven field lacrosse jamboree through Your City Sports, a Surrey-based business.

For every pair that was purchased, Your City Sports donated a pair of socks to a homeless charity within that community.

Shared The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope Executive Director, Jim Coggles, “The sock donation from Your City Sports, in partnership with the Langley Minor Lacrosse Association, goes a long way in helping those who come to us for help at this time of year. For those living on the street, or who are coming into our emergency shelter out of the cold, a clean new pair of socks can be an almost unimaginable gift. The simple, everyday things that so many of take for granted, like a fresh pair of socks in the morning, can be the just the sort of thing that begins to give those without, a sense of hope and dignity.”

Since Your City Sport began nine months ago, they have donated more than 8,000 pairs of socks to various charities in B.C. and Washington State.
