Residents and staff members from 24 different Retirement Concepts locations across Canada collected hats, gloves, socks and undergarments for the homeless. On Friday (Dec. 16), members from Langley Seniors Village delivered their donations to the Gateway of Hope. Pictured are Langley Seniors Village residents Darlene Sandvoss, Doreen Davies and Maxine Olson (front row), along with marketing manager Tania de Pape (back, right), delivering 68 toques, two scarves, 25 gloves, three headbands and 165 pair of socks to Emmy Skates, executive director of the Gateway of Hope (back, right). The campaign originated in Vancouver three years ago with Barbara Vance, better known as the 'Sock Granny,' who would collect and donate more than 400 socks each year to those she felt were the most vulnerable.
