New Socks for Homeless Shelters 

Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul 

Comforting the feet is a Heart Matter

This picture by Lee Jeffries will move you if you let it. Everytime we think of the lonliness of it all, our hearts break. Add the feeling of wet and cold feet and it's almost impossible to think of anything else. Even a hungry stomach is secondary. Is a simple pair of socks too much to possess?We know you have a heart of compassion - please respond to what it is saying to you. Please respond today. Not tomorrow, not next week, but today. What a good feeling it is to know your caring is the difference between a cold , sleepless night, and a peaceful one.  

Hello Southwestern USA , Here We Come!

Comfort Socks and Your City Sports couldn't be happier of our work together. There's just something about socks that brings a smile. 340 smiles to be exact. That's how many socks were sent out this month to Visalia Rescue Mission (CA), & A New Leaf Shelter (AZ)

Our new friends at Sophia Way were thrilled to receive awesome socks from the Your City Sports and Comfort Socks collaboration - Here is what Sophia Way has to say....
Karie shows off the generous donation of 192 pairs of socks from our friends at Your City Sports, given through the wonderful organization Comfort Socks! Socks are always at the top of our list of needed items, especially when the weather gets colder, and these will help keep our clients' feet warm and dry through the winter, giving them one less thing to worry about in their journey to independence. Thank you!

What’s Coming Up?
Stay tuned for more news on this, but a sneak peak – Kappa Sigma Fraternity is hosting a 2 state sock drive various weekends in Oct. There’s about 10 chapters involved through out North and South Carolina. YAY Kappa Sigma, get those socks !


WOW!

Our friends at Mitscoots are growing into a great new direction, and we think that's marvelous! It's called "The Outfitting Project". Mitscoots is expanding into a ton of other warm weather gear for the transitioning homeless population. Remember, Mitscoots employees people without a home in their facitilty, so your participation give s a work opportunity for someone who needs it most, PLUS support a sock charity such as Comfort Socks (because Mitscoots donates socks to us) AND you get a great product or two. Mitscoots, we are proud to call you friend, and we support you wholeheartedly in this venture.

All we can say is WOW - Calabash ELKS Ladies Aux Lodge# 2679- thank you for your faithfulness. Every September and October & every January and February you always pull through with warm, soft comfort socks! Your commitment encourages us and blesses
greatly.

Every November, Brunswick Plantation's Neighbors in Service does an amazing sock drive for Comfort Socks. I mean it, they go all out, driving around in golf carts picking up socks that hang from the mailboxes. We appreciate them so much and the homeless appreciate the thousands of pairs they collect. So I'd like to ask our local friends and followers to please come down to their Arts and Crafts Fair - there'll be plenty of smiling faces, awesome baked goods and much to see. Thank you, Neighbors in Service for all you do! 
Please prayerfully consider a monthly giving amount. Know that we are sincerely grateful for your attentiveness to the needs of others, and are honored you have chosen Comfort Socks as a way to express your desire to help. Your committment, no matter how small, makes a difference to us. Remember, every sock matters, for every sock represents a person you have blessed.
