BTA's Sock it to Poverty campaign returns

For the fourth year, the Burnaby Teachers’ Association is collecting warm winter wear through its Sock it to Poverty campaign in Burnaby.

Socks, toques, gloves, scarves, cash donations and toiletries are being collected until Dec. 6 in all Burnaby schools and Burnaby adult education sites for donation to the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness.

“Burnaby teachers have supported this initiative whole heartedly each year and this is one of the most important ways teachers can assist the homeless and under-housed in our community,” said BTA Social Justice Committee chairperson Rocky McLaughlin, a teacher at Cascade Heights elementary.

The public is encouraged to bring donations to the Burnaby Teachers’ Association office during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at #115-3993 Henning Drive, Burnaby.

Info: 604-294-8141.
