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...

Relationships 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.

It 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
