New Socks for Homeless Shelters 

Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul 

Artist Lee Jeffries has captured a moment that will speak to you, if you let it. This picture moves me to understand that this person is walking through the most difficult time in their life. We, as caring people, must respond to the desparation of their circumstance. It's not about their choices, it's about ours. Please let this moment be a moment of hope in your own life. Let's move together and start right here, with an answer to a prayer, and by providing this one simple, warm, but powerful thing. Join us as we Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul.

A Place to Keep the Comfort...
Comfort socks is enlarging it's tents! We have been offered incredible pricing on an ideal place to store our socks, and we have accepted this challenge in faith. For to give the loving touch of comfort to a broken person is a precious and powerful thing, so we are seizing the opportunity. Please join in our enthusiasm. You can touch a life by offering a fresh, new covering of love with a monthly gift in any amount. Even $5.00 speaks so much to us. Who's going to be the first to help us hang a shingle on our door? We're counting on you.  www.comfortsocks.org


Our Wonderful Partnership. You’ve heard the term ‘stepping up to the plate, well Comfort Socks and Your City Sports have really done it this time. With the help of custom sock purchases by Cloud 9 Sports for the 2015 PGC Summer Camps, the Comfort Socks and Your City Sports partnership was able to send 3300 pairs of socks to Comfort Socks homeless shelters and non-profits.

WOW – we are kicking up our feet up about that one.
The homeless shelters and non-profits chosen have been long standing Comfort Sock recipients. They are an amazing source of hope to the homeless all across the USA, and so it is our great honor and privilege to bless them once again.
