New Socks for Homeless Shelters 

Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul 

It begins at our feet                                                              by: Songs of the Beloved
This journey
Of a thousand heart beats
Walked in ceremony
Amidst the sound
Of heavens symphony
As a soul
Is rekindled
And reawakened
From its dormancy
Back to this ancient of paths
Where the world
Becomes hushed in silence
As a soul is reshaped
And redrawn
By the exhaled
Breath of the Almighty


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!

There's a whole lotta talkin going on... 

Here is what Haven of Rest Homeless Shelter of Akron Ohio spoke to Comfort Socks today....“ Thanks so much for the very generous donation of these socks. There were many more in the boxes than we expected and we really appreciate that. These socks are such a blessing especially with the freezing cold temperatures we’ve been having over the past few weeks. You truly run a wonderful ministry that impacts many homeless in such a positive way. Thanks to you Theresa for your kind heart. I pray that God will continue to bless you and Comfort Socks in many ways!"

What’s that you say?.. Socks on Sunday on a Thursday? Yes, indeed, thanks to Calabash Covenant Presbyterian Church - when we asked for Ladies socks, they delivered - it's funny how the exact amount we needed was the exact amount CCPC collected. Must be a God thing!

This is what Twin Cities had to say..."We would like to send out a huge THANK YOU! to all the kids and staff at Centralia Middle School for choosing us to donate their fundraising socks to. It's the one thing our shelter never has enough of. Also big shout out and thank you to Your City Sports and Comfort Socks for starting a much needed outreach. God Bless You All! We received 120 pairs of really cool socks!"

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!

Heads Up - Celebrate with us, as Goodnet.org features Comfort Socks in mid-april. Can't wait to see the article.
