New Socks for Homeless Shelters

     Comfort Socks Newsletter - December 2014

    Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul 

Sock Love Matters.....

Comfort Socks (www.comfortsocks.org) began with a dream to deliver comfort using the simple covering of warm cotton materials over the broken and tired feet of a homeless person. Socks seem like a small and sometimes insignificant thing - but to one whose every step is painful, it is the difference between being able to look at their surroundings with pain or with hope.

As we reflect on the homeless shelters and non-profits Comfort Socks serves, a deep appreciation of their often unappreicated work arises in us. We hear the excitement in their voice when they socks are coming, for they know they will see cheek to cheek smiles when they hand their homeless guests socks. Do you see how your Comfort Socks support has touched lives? We cherish you, our Comfort Socks family, for choosing us as a way to express your love to others.

2015 the Year of Hope

Artist Lee Jeffries has captured a moment that will speak to you, if you let it. Please don't look away - Instead look deeply into her soul and then look UP. Perhaps you will say something like "What would You have me do, Lord - Send me".  Let this moment compel you more than ever before to touch another's life. Let this moment label 2015 in your heart and actions as THE year of hope. Let's do it together.

Working Together Brings a Great Harvest ...

Now our work brings us to an exciting new type of connection, a connection of dedication to provide this comfort by means of matching a sock sale with a sock donation. We continue to be amazed at how this thing we call sock love just keeps multiplying. Thank you Your City Sports for our kindred heart and purpose.

This month, the Comfort Socks partnership with Your City Sports (www.yourcitysports.com)  brought 960pairs of socks to;
Freezing Nights Program – Puyallup, WA
Amy’s Place – Bellingham, WA
Yakima Union Gospel Mission, Yakima WA
Albany Helping Hands – Albany OR


Help us keep this fantastic momentum going by supporting Your City Sports. Together we continue to Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul!

We Receive and Give with LOVE... 

We've got Good Shepherd smiling again - just delivered womens and kids socks for their family units (that are all full right now). Glad we were able to send some comfort their way.

We received a beautiful gift from the United Methodist Women of Camp UMC. They dedicated their Christmas luncheon to the purpose of Comfort Socks. I just love these women who tirelessly give of themselves for so many causes. Thank you, ladies, for choosing Comfort Socks to bless this day.

Old Shallotte Baptist Church – Socks, Socks and more Socks – Blessings to you for remembering our mission, and for asking us to come and speak with you in January 2015 – Just can’t wait!

So pleased to share with you this great picture of long time friend, Pastor Geoff Smith of New Song Church - Westford Mass and new time friend, Diane Waddell of Living Waters Center of Hope. So thrilled to be able to send the warmest socks!

Thanks to: Someone in Bentonville, AZ who used Walmart.com to bless us with socks TWICE – you started something great because now someone in WACO TX sent us socks from their local Walmart.com - YAY!

Odell Williamson Auditorium once again hosted a Comfort Sock drive this year for their December season show, Thursday Dec 4 @ 7:30. We are thrilled and humbled at the same time. The ANNIE MOSES BAND was amazing. Special thanks to Michael Sapp, Danielle Graves and all at OWA who remember us year after year - truly you Comfort the Feet, and Comfort the Souls of many.

Kindness Keeps Us Going....

A Word from Homeless Bus
Collaboration strikes again!!! We are so completely thrilled to have just received a box of 240 pairs of brand new socks for the people we serve! Many thanks to Comfort Socks, a public charity based out of North Carolina, who regularly provides new socks to homeless shelters all across the United States. Thank you guys SOOOO MUCH!!!!

Our hearts are so touched by the love expressed by the SonDance Liturgical Dance Group and to receive this beautiful thank you. We shared with these dedicated young ladies how the feet of those who dance bring freedom, and how the feet of the homeless bring a sad realization. Thank you, SonDance, for your dance of faith.
