New Socks for Homeless Shelters
Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul
Thank you Your City Sports for our kindred heart and purpose. This month, the Comfort Socks partnership with Your City Sports (www.yourcitysports.com)
has kept us busy busy organizing and preparing for some exciting
news we will soon announce. Socks did go out to youth shelter Amy's
Place just in time to meet their need. Joy filled both our organizations when we read the thank you card from Lewis County Gospel Mission. Help
us keep this fantastic momentum going by supporting Your City Sports.
Together we continue to Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul!

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!!
Speaking of Veteran support, Thank You American Legion # 543 of St James
for allowing us the privledge and honor to share our mission. Super
excited you will collecting the socks we will give to the Standdown on
May 8th - Veterans helping Veterans receive the comfort of new socks.
We love it!
