The Vancouver Street Store is a one time event to impact the social fabric of the residents of the Downtown Eastside. We are three students from Langara College who heard about the concept and have decided to bring this pop up to Vancouver as part of a Special Event Management course at Langara College. We wanted to use this opportunity to plan and organize a meaningful event that will have a positive impact on the community.

Beyond the used clothing donations that we are collecting, we are also wanting to purchase a large amount of new socks to give away at our November event. If you're homeless, socks are amazing pieces of clothing that keep you warm, comfortable and keep your feet healthy. Unfortunately good, clean, new socks are hard to come by if you're living on the street and they are never taken for granted. 

Dig in your pockets, under the seat in your car or between your couch cushions and find it in your heart to give a little because $1.50 buys a brand new pair of socks for someone who will truly appreciate it.
