New Socks for Homeless Shelters
Comfort Socks Newsletter - February 2015
Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul
2015 the Year of HopeArtist
Lee Jeffries has captured a moment that will speak to you, if you let
it. This picture opens me to this homeless woman's realization of
fear. I also see the toll it takes on a life. We, as
caring people, must respond to the desparation of circumstance.
It's not about their choices, it's about ours. Please let 2015 be THE
year of hope. Let's move together and start right here by providing
this one simple, warm, but powerful
thing. Join us as we strive to Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul.
Often when we have the
privilege to share our mission to a group or agency, often feel moved
to speak about the network we have developed across the nation. The
people who work at shelters and non-profits who primarily serve the
homeless one on one deserve such recognition. Often a broken person is
angry at the ‘hand that feeds them”. But yet these go forth in love and
compassion anyway, reacting from the heart instead of what the world
says is justified. I hope you will join me in including them in your
prayers along with the homeless. I am mindful that 2/3 of the angels
did NOT fall, and they are being used right here, in the background, to
encourage and bless others.
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 360 pairs of socks to 3 amazing places of rest for the homeless feet. Northwest Youth Services (NYS) is a 16 bed shelter for youth and young adults and they served over 800 youth in 2014. Lewis County Gospel Mission in Chehalis, WA. is a place that provides showers and meals for the homeless. Twin Cities Mission
is a shelter for women and children and they have 17 beds. They
partner with a church called Gather Church where they have a program
called “Socks in the cities”. They go out on the streets and give
socks to the homeless. So the socks would be used in the shelter
as well as on the streets.
us keep this fantastic momentum going by supporting Your City Sports.
Together we continue to Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul!
Covered With Love... Can you feel the love tonight? We sure can - thank you Mitscoots Socks.
Your donation of warm comfort socks for the soul will be heading up to
Haven of Rest homeless shelter in Ohio. We will sleep well knowing we
did good together.
For the homeless of Wilmington, the Early Bread program at Church of St. Peter the Fisherman provides
Sunday morning nourishment, for body and soul, complimented with the
comfort of new socks. Comfort Socks is proud to have provided enough
socks to keep their breakfasts going for quite a while. Thank you to
our supporters, whose blessing overflows to those without a home.

their knees warming feet and changing socks, serving food ....” Now
that’s what we are talking about.
We love when our local community connects with the purpose of blessing. We send out a very heartfelt thank you to Southport Elementary School for their recent sock drive. Kids, parents and faculty, you sure know how to come together and accomplish sock love.
Calabash Covenant Presbyterian's Sock's On Sunday Event was a HUGE success. 600 pairs of socks collected so far and more on the way. That means over 600 people BLESSED! They fully understood the importance of socks (and shoes) and many worshipped in their stocking feet. Eventho
the frigid weather added a chill to the tile floors, the congregants
embraced the concept. Thank you Calabash Covenant Presbyterian Church,
for your Sock Love in action. Click here to host your own Socks on

Proud to announce we will be providing over 300 pairs of socks to the 2015 New Hanover Veterans Standdown on May 8, 2015.
A standdown is a special event given once a year for our Veterans who
are street homeless. For the entire day there are meals, haircuts,
clothing, medical care, identification help, and our favorite the “foot
station”. Guests leave with a backpack full of great things, sock being
purposely placed as one of the first item to be seen when the bag is
opened. We love to see their faces light up!!
