Talk About Honors...

HUGE THANK YOU to ATMC for their generous community grants program.Truly honored to stand with Missy Settlemyre-Wings and 16 fellow ATMC grant recipients.

Lots to do - and great people to do it with!

Featured Friends

We love to connect with people, but it is a special thing to be partnered with a couple who really sacrifice so much for the good of others. It is our great honor (and quite frankly humbles us too) to work with Tim & Christy of God's Garage. The theme of their lives is this...."Growing Together Where Life Happens - the Church has left the Building" Please connect with them and support their ministry if you can. http://godsgarageonline.weebly.com/ Thank you Tim & Christy for all you do.

Sharing Some Testimonials....

My name is Chris Caddell and I'm with LifeLine Ministries of Northern Kentucky.  I've been acquainted with Theresa and her organization for several years now and I must say it's been such a pleasure and immense blessing for our organization to receive socks for our clients from Comfort Socks.  We have hundreds of clients we serve on a monthly basis that are in dire need of new socks.  Many come in wearing shoes with no socks at all or they own one pair that they never have the luxury of washing or rotating out with another pair.  We've also seen instances where families walk several miles to our location with barefoot children in tow......Just wanted to share as I am a HUGE fan of Comfort Socks.

Step into the world of Mitscoots and Comfort Socks....

Thank you, Mitscoots, for the sock donation. They arrived at LYNN Ministries in MA - putting mucho smiles on many faces!

Schools Out but We're Still In...
We connected with local schools at the end of the year to make sure the kids had enough socks for the summer and when they return in the fall. Attention Teachers - Comfort Socks makes a great community service project during the school year. Also - we are going to try to get our Youth Board of Directors Program going again - so please keep us in mind in the fall. We care about your kids!
