A kiosk has opened at a chic shopping and art enclave in downtown Toronto selling toques and work socks emblazoned with the Home Depot logo. It’s an initiative by Home Depot Canada’s charitable arm, the Home Depot Foundation, to raise money for the foundation’s designated cause, helping homeless youth.
This is actually the third year that Home Depot Canada has been selling toques in its stores and online to raise money at this time of year, but it’s the first time socks have been added to the line, and the first time it’s tried out a live location. It’s located at the Stackt Market, a public space with shops built entirely from shipping containers.
The kiosk will operate until Nov. 26, with all proceeds going to charities that support homeless and at-risk kids in this country. The kiosk also offers tea, hot chocolate, and live Christmas trees, the last being sold for only $30.
