Smiles because of the warm, durable socks we received from Joanne LaRocco of NY - Although my hands feel the softness of them, my eyes see the heart of behind them. It only takes a simple thing like this to bless someone so much - Thank you, Joanne, for remembering us.

A Word from Our Founder


My heart breaks everytime I think of it - someone cold and alone, living on the streets, afraid at night, not always able to find help. To most of us, we don't give a second thought about socks. But to one who is on their feet all day, having to be ready to move on at all times, their worn socks reflect the weariness of their spirit. Every step is a painful reminder of their condition. So we thought, if we could do this one simple thing, just give them warmth, and a break from their pain, surely they would know a peace of some kind.

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 46,442 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.

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.
