New Socks for Homeless Shelters
Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul
Comforting the feet is a Heart MatterThis
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
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
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!
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!

think that's marvelous! It's called "The Outfitting Project". Mitscoots

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.

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
Please prayerfully consider a monthly giving amount.

sincerely grateful for your attentiveness to the needs of others, and
