donation & fundraiser for the homeless
As Lion's, we take pride in doing good for our community!
2018 we collected 295 pairs of sock along with boots, hand & foot warmers & $40 to buy socks for the Bethel Winter House.
Since 2015 Annual Toasty Toes Event is just one of the ways the ASSCLC gives back! The day after Black Friday we sit at the corner of 6th and Ingra in downtown Anchorage in a converted school bus giving away hot cocoa, coffee, or tea in exchange for donated NEW or very GENTLY used socks, boots, and more. All items are gathered are donated to a number of local shelters to help keep Alaska's needy and homeless warm throughout the winter months.
Our first annual Toasty Toes gathered over 600 pairs of socks for men, women, & children, aproximately a dozen pairs of boots, over $200 in cash and online donations. Perhaps the best part of the day was being able to outfit a homeless gentleman that walked through the parking lot at the right time with holes in his boots and socks.
Check back for details on our next Toasty Toes event.
