The CAFP Sock Drive

Want to show your CAFP Ryerson pride for a good cause?

CAFP Ryerson is competing against the other CAFP student branches for charity! Our goal is to collect as many “new socks” (no holes please and thank you) as possible for two Men’s Shelters in our area including the Good Shepherd in Toronto and the Welcome Centre in Guelph.   Socks are always needed for feet and sometimes even hands, so the more socks we collect the more people we reach. Please drop them off at the School of Nutrition Office at KHS349 in the marked box. 

The winning school will receive a trophy and prize (to be announced shortly)  at the CAFP Student Awards Night on March 19th. Deadline for all socks donations is March 14th

All proceeds have been donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Society. We could not have done this without the help of our volunteers and your generous donations.

Many thanks,
