In October, the Children of the Church School invited the Congregation to build a mountain of socks (as well as hats and gloves) to be delivered to First United Church mission in Downtown Eastside Vancouver during Advent. The mountain became so big it spilled over the edges of the base. Thank you to Bob and Martha Ware who picked up the items from the Sock Mountain on December 2nd for delivery to First United. (Note: we did hold back several pairs of socks and gloves as well as hats to offer to the Cold Weather Shelter in Sechelt. The director of the shelter thanked us, but said they have a fair number of these items and no space to store more.) We send the socks with prayers that the people living on the streets who come to First United will have warm dry feet.
