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 our physical bodies show only the
surface scars of a hard and battered life. We, as caring people,
to others in need of love and comfort. 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.
Chloe's Socks For Souls shared this story that I had to
share with you. “…..A man told me he used to
prepare bodies for burial at a funeral home. He once prepared a homeless man's
body who always had a limp when he walked. Upon attempting to remove the shoes
from this homeless mans body, he realized the man had a limp because the skin
on the bottom of his foot had attached itself to the sole of his shoe because
he had no socks..” Teaching our children to pray for
others is a special and powerful thing. When Comfort Socks has the
privilege to speak to young children, we leave them with an infant sock
to keep under their pillow, and ask that they remember to pray for
those without a home. Thank you to our supporters for helping us keep
the blessings flowing.

Clark-Tietjen - 15 months in a row. We appreciate your share love! We, here at Comfort Socks, thought we couldn't be more excited about our Bombas connection, until we saw the quality of Bombas donation socks!
They are an amazing fit for the homeless feet we will be serving. Thank
you, Bombas, for your heart for the homeless. Because of you, we can
bless the following 5 shelters with the excellence of Bombas socks.
Each shelter received 250 pairs of socks - that's 1,200 pairs in all,
which means 1,200 people were comforted today.

The Church of the Common Ground is a special church.
They operate outdoors, touching those on the streets in a special way.
Every week, this church ministers God's love by washing the feet of the
homeless, applying lotion, and adding that special final touch of
comfort we love - new socks. In addition, they encourage those who have
had their feet washed, to do the same to others. What a dedicated and
beautiful expression of God's love. Comfort Socks and Your City Sports
are humbled and proud to provide socks to the Church of the Common
Ground - Atlanta, Ga
