Describe your organization:
The Parent’s Organization’s Arts Booster Club (ABC) at Upper Canada College — The ABC promotes school spirit through the arts at UCC.

Approximately 20 per cent of students receive financial assistance from the school's sector-leading program, with $5 million available annually to Canadian students.

What made you choose Sock Rocket?
My family has enjoyed a Sock Rocket monthly subscription for a number of years and we know the quality that Sock Rocket provides. When it came time to make a decision on a new sock provider the price points and delivery times lined up with other providers but the quality could not be beat! In addition, we loved the idea of donating 3 pairs of socks for every pair we ordered. As a result, we were able to supply 750 pairs of warm, dry socks to underprivileged children and their families over the holidays.
How was the product quality and customer service?
From the very start, the customer service from Tommy and the team at Sock Rocket was fantastic. Providing detailed information on the process and timelines and sharing a number of design concepts with us based on just a few comments from our end, the team rocked the process and made the whole experience easy and fun!

How we delivered:
What did you use the socks for? Did people enjoy receiving them?
We are using the socks as fundraising initiatives for the ABC. The funds raised from the sale of the socks will go towards promoting and supporting the Arts at UCC as well as providing some funding towards upgrades and updates within the variety of Arts offered at the school - drama, music, visual arts, digital media and language & literature to name just a few. The socks were a huge success at our annual Festive Marketplace and many people have told us that they loved the new designs as well as the quality of the socks.
What was your favorite thing about the whole experience?
It was hard to narrow down our favourite thing about the whole experience but if we had to pick just one we would say it was working with Tommy and the design team to bring our visions to life in the two final designs that we selected.
Do you have anything else to share?
Just a great big thank you for helping us launch a successful pair of new designs for our ABC socks!Get A Quote
