Take The 519Pledge

The 519Pledge is a community initiative that happens from October 1st – November 15th each year. The initiative was brought to light to change the conversation around homelessness leading into the colder months of the year. 519Pursuit encourages folks in the community to take the pledge to obtain 519 pairs of socks to donate. Each individual or team begins a conversation with their friends, families and networks for six weeks to raise awareness of items and solutions that could support those facing homelessness. The immediate ask in support is a donation of a brand new pair or pack of socks.

Throughout the past 6 years we have led successful campaigns by raising over 428,000 pairs of socks. Over the past 6 years these socks have been used to support individuals facing homelessness and extreme poverty through community outreach as well as donated forward to over 80 other community groups, services and shelters  from London – Toronto.

Each year the need for socks becomes more significant. Socks are one of the most asked for items and least thought to be donated. Consider joining 519Pursuit this fall and taking the pledge to raise 519 pairs of socks.
