Socks for the Homeless

One of my favorate holiday traditions is stuffing the socks for the homeless at Granny Di's! We all bring something...toiletries, cards, books, snacks, batteries/flashlights...whatever we think they could use. Then we stuff as much as we can into a tube sock (including the other tube sock), and tie it with a stuffed animal. They look so cute and Arupa from the HomeVan tells us how much they look forward to them every year. I cannot imagine being homeless, but my brother has been. I am so thankful to Dianne for organizing this every year and helping to teach our children about those less fortunate than us and making a difference.
