It’s the giving season, and University of Alberta Libraries is encouraging everyone to support young people in need. Between December 3 and 18, you have the opportunity to fill the socks adorning the holiday trees at the H.T. Coutts Library and Bibliothèque Saint-Jean with items for Youth Empowerment & Support Services (YESS).

What can you trim the trees with? Here is a list of some of the most sought after items:
  • New wool socks 
  • New underwear, men’s &; women’s, all sizes 
  • Winter jackets 
  • Waterproof, quality winter gloves/mitts 
  • Toques 
  • Hand/foot warmers 
  • Winter boots and warm shoes, all sizes (but especially larger sizes, women’s 7-10, men’s 9-12) 
  • Belts 
  • Men’s & women’s deodorant 
  • Shampoo and conditioner for black youth (Cantu or Revlon recommended) 
  • Hand/body lotion
