Comfort Socks & Your City Sports Partnership Has Begun ...

Custom Sport Socks maker, Your City Sports (YCS), has found a great way to connect 4 entities and give comfort to the feet of the homeless. With a focus on community, Your City Sports will donate one pair of socks for every pair they sell, to the community in which the socks were sold. Your City Sports and Comfort Socks decided to partner together to bring the comfort of new socks to homeless shelters throughout the USA, working together to concentrate on the cities/locations Comfort Socks serves.


This concept caught the eye and heart of Cloud9Sports of Lynden WA, whose purchase of 450 pairs of custom socks has allowed YCS to donate 450 pairs of awesome socks to Comfort Socks longtime partner, Stand Up 4 Kids, Seattle WA.

So together, two non-profits are blessed by two for-profit companies, all of whom are rejoicing in the street youth of Seattle receiving the comfort of new, warm, amazing socks. The Comfort Socks motto is “Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul” and these 4 entities have been able to accomplish just that!

You are Soooo Welcome Haven of Rest...

Happy to share what Haven of Rest has to say....

Haven of Rest Ministries is so thankful to Comfort Socks for the donation of 120 pairs of new men’s socks. A pair of socks is more than just a new item of clothing to these men. These socks bring warmth to their feet and a smile to their face; but even deeper than that, these socks show them that someone cares. They show them that they are valued enough to be given a brand new pair of socks.

 Melvin Fields, Manager of Client Services says, “Many men coming to the Mission are diabetic and a new, clean pair of socks is important in helping their sores heal and keeping up with their hygiene.”Jesus says, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40) At Haven of Rest Ministries every person that walks through the door is treated as a person that is loved and valued by God. Through giving these men new socks Haven of Rest is able to show Christ’s love to the disadvantaged men, women and children.
