Socks for Hope wants to provide students with leadership opportunities to help others. Let's give them an opportunity to learn about the vulnerable people in their communities, at their schools and in their neighbourhoods. They may have friends in need of support that they never knew were struggling. 

Let's gently encourage students to learn about people experiencing homelessness and hardship in a compassionate and uplifting environment. Let's also reflect back to them how much their efforts are valued, and how good it feels to make a difference.

Various schools and teams collecting socks

Every year, we are fortunate to have new schools reaching out to join us. Here are a few mentions: Mohawk College, St. John Paul II Catholic Elementary School in Hamilton, Pilgram Wood, WH Morden, West Oak Public, Maplehurst Public, Lakeshore Public School, Central Public School and Central High in Burlington. Not to forget HCSB and HDSB, we are so appreciative of your support. Student teams: Milton Magic Soccer, Scooby Soccer, Burlington Bayhawks, Burlington Barracudas, Force Soccer. See our Community Page for the full listing. 


Central Elementary, Burlington

In the past, we've had teachers like Sher Masters, working with her students to learn more about need in our community. Sher's leadership team met with Compassion Society of Halton and did a class project, having the executive director in for a visit and learn.  These students also made thoughtful signs to support Socks for Hope!


Central High School, Burlington

Teacher, Robert Radway, continues to encourage students to lend a hand and learn about Socks for Hope. His grade 10 student, Owen Stodulka, partnered with university student, Amy Wallace, and together they created this Website. In 2024, the website was updated by grade 12 student, Linus Belanger.  Grateful!  Pres, another keen grade 10 student, created a journalism project to get to know "a day in the life" for an individual facing adversity. 

Students running their own socks collections

Brothers, Gavin and Keaton Sherwood-Jones, collected socks from their schoolmates, hockey team and their local paper route for four years! Thank you, boys, for your contributions and demonstration of student leadership!
