5 Years of Service - Happy Birthday Comfort Socks 

Guess Who's Birthday is Coming? That's right - It's Ours! On October 22nd we will be 5 years old. Any ideas on how we can raise awareness for our mission with a birthday theme? Here's one way to celebrate our birthday, and YOURS too!

 

Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul.


We are so pleased to share with you some exciting Comfort Socks news.

Comfort Socks and Mitscoots Socks have agreed to partner together and what a beautiful partnership it will be. Why are we so excited? Because Mitscoots Socks really understands the walk of the homeless and are determined to do all they can to help. Their concern has driven the company's founders to design socks specifically with the endurance standards necessary for the homeless situation. In addition, Mitscoots employs homeless people in their warehouse, giving them hope and stability. For us, this company is so in line with our mind and heart set, seeking to soothe the whole person by delivering the comfort of new socks, knowing this opens a way for a broken person to be restored. We are proud to be affiliated with Mitscoots, and look forward to many years of working together for the common good. Our first monthly shipment will arrive in Oct - we can hardly wait! www.mitscoots.com

A Word from Our Founder


So you hear it all the time on the news "The jacket that Michael Jackson wore in Thriller sold at auction today for ?? Million dollars" or "so and so’s outfit from this scene of that movie is worth so much". But yet, many people often discount something like a prayer cloth as inconsequential.

The perspective of the world to put great value on mere fibers of cloth, because they were touched by someone they consider to be highly esteemed, oddly is not that far from our perspective.

For we believe that the healing power of the only true highly esteemed One, the Lord Jesus Christ, is transferred to these mere fibers of cloth each time we lovingly prepare, package and pray over the socks we receive. Then out they go to shelter after shelter, and although we know that they are received as valuable by the recipient, we know in our hearts that their true value can never be measured.

Comfort Socks has recently been given special pricing on warm and comfortable socks perfect for their mission. For about $1.00, a person on the street can receive 2 pairs of comfort and love. Won't you join me in sharing with someone this simple, but so important act of kindness and love?

Your support of Comfort Socks has allowed us to receive 45,910 pairs of socks so far.  We are so grateful to all our supporters. First: We wish Comfort and Compassion are known by our actions and to all sock recipients.  Second: We pray for Blessings for our supporters, sock recipients, and those without a home. Third: Please stay mindful of us and remember us monthly, if you can. Special Thanks to New Life Christian Fellowship http://www.newlifecf.net for allowing us the use of their facilities and for their prayers and support for our mission.

Do you own real estate may wish to donate to us? Now might be a  BEST time to consider the tax benefits of donating property to a non-profit like Comfort Socks. If you have a piece of property that you are unable to sell or lease, a donation of that real estate to Comfort Socks would be of interest to us and may be of great benefit to you. Please contact me so we can discuss these opportunities.
