5 Years of Service - Happy Birthday Comfort Socks
Who's Birthday is Coming? That's right - It's Ours! On October 22nd we

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.comWelcome new Socks Recipient!
Socks is proud to welcome The Gubbio Project as a new sock recipient.
The amazing heart of God is seen through this project. From 6am - 3pm,
this church opens it's doors to the homeless so they have a place to
sleep safely. They offer restrooms, hygiene kits, blankets and socks,
all while worship is going on all day. We are very moved by their

A Word from Our Founder
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
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
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

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.

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
and may be of great benefit to you. Please contact me so we can discuss these opportunities.
