Clean socks are one of the biggest needs for people living on the streets.

Thanks to the combined generosity of a local sports club and an athletic sports sock company, 300 pairs of brand new socks have been donated to The Front Room, a 24-hour drop in centre in Surrey.

Aman Heran, director of AthElite Basketball, said he ordered custom-made socks for his basketball program from Your City Sports, a new company that makes athletic socks. The socks were delivered last week.

For every pair sold, the company donates a pair to a homeless charity in the community.

Your City Sports has now donated more than 2,500 pairs of socks to various charities in the Lower Mainland in the past four months.
