Featured Friends: Your City Sports
The idea for Your
City Sports was born in 2013 while volunteering at an event for the
homeless. At that event YCS learned that socks were the #1 need for
people on the streets. They acted on their vision to create a brand of high
quality athletic socks that are FUN to wear. With every pair of socks they sell, YCS
will donate a new pair of socks to a homeless charity in that community. “The
Power of Community • The Heart of Giving Back” http://www.yourcitysports.com/. Comfort Socks is proud to
partner with Your City Sports – Be on the lookout for a soon to be released Press
Release about the good our partnership has accomplished!!
A Bittersweet Blessing...
between non-profits are born everyday, but those built on a like heart
become a foundation of support and love for one another. This is the
experience Comfort Socks has had with Mychel's Munchies of Chandler, Arizona.
has always been our honor to give socks to Mychel's outreach events -
so you can imagine our great surprise when we received an email from
Leslie Jackson, Mychel's Munchies founder and CEO, that they had a gift
for us! Leslie explained that after 6 years, Mychel's Munchies was
going to have to close, and the Mychel's Munchie's donors agreed to
give all funds on hand to Comfort Socks. We humbly accept this great
gift of love shown to us, and rejoice in all those they have blessed in
the past 6 years. You have given much more than food and clothes for
the body - you have given an outpouring of love that can only spring up
from one place - the heart. Thank you, Leslie and the Mychel's Muchie
team, for honoring us in this way. God Bless Each of You

Feet, Comfort the Soul
