In the spirit of ice-cold toes and all of the giving that goes on during this month, Barb Mulrooney—a friendly face you might recognize from Julien’s Bakery’s stall at the Seaport Farmers‘ Market (1209 Marginal Road)—is holding her second annual sock drive for Shelter Nova Scotia and the Mobile Outreach Street Health program this Saturday, December 6.

Julien’s and Mulrooney will be accepting men’s, women’s and children’s socks (preferably new ones) all day from her market stall. Last year, she collected 553 pairs and hopes to make an even bigger difference this year. “It really doesn’t take much,” she says. “If everyone that came to the market brought one pair of socks with them, it would do them for a year.”
