Comfort Socks Newsletter - March 2012 - Socks for the Homeless   


Because of a Sock

Does anyone else besides me find it interesting that Dobby, the enslaved elf in the Harry Potter series, was freed by a sock?

Out of 88 grant applications, Comfort Socks was selected as one of the recipients. But to see community action and efforts at work is a truly a blessed thing for us. Thank You BEMC, for seeing and supporting our vision, and for reaching out to our community in such a powerful and positive way.

Comfort Socks accepted the invitation of Dr. Daniel Miller, the host of WVOX IN FOCUS radio show. The IN FOCUS program airs out of Westchester NY, and Comfort Socks was on the air on the March 21st, 6:30 pm segment. This is the second time we have had this honor. Don't worry if you couldn’t tune in - we will get an audio of the broadcast and post on our website. Thank You, Dr Miller, for the opportunity to share the Comfort Socks mission with your listeners

We are proud to work with BC Streetreach supporting Brunswick County (our home county) with the comfort of new socks. What an amazing work all the host sites did this past winter! Looking forward to keeping our community filled with socks next season. www.bcstreetreach.org

A Great Big Thank You to our Sock Collectors

The Ladies of the Jennies Branch Baptist Church presented socks to us and gave us the opportunity to break their hearts as to the condition of the homeless. Thank you, Ladies, for your reception to our mission. We know we will be hearing from you again.  http://www.jenniesbranch.org/

Received socks all the way from Fort Edward, NY thanks to Elizabeth Babson and the children of Little Angels Daycare – always so exciting and encouraging for us when we know our message is heard.

Once again, the heart and faithfulness of Comfort Socks supporter, Matthew Cloner, of Seattle, Washington appeared through the socks that arrived this month. Matthew has been with us from the beginning. We are blessed that you have found us, Matthew.

Welcome Susie, our first ‘Comfort Box’ volunteer. Susie is the Florida contact for anyone who wants to do a sock drive. She will schedule your events, and work out the details of getting the socks/funds you collect to a shelter authorized by Comfort Socks or to our North Carolina warehouse. Thank You, Suzie, for being the first of many Comfort Box volunteers to help us grow and serve the needs of the homeless throughout America. To contact Susie or if you interested in becoming a Comfort Box in your state, please email:info@comfortsocks.org

Ever been in love? Well, the ladies of the non-profit org "Neighbors in Service" sure do love Comfort Socks. These Brunswick Plantation residents have decided to support our mission once again in the fall. We are so grateful to have found them, and just for the record "We Love You Too, Neighbors in Service".

Thank You Contributors - for your Faithfulness

Your support of Comfort Socks has allowed us to receive 36,606 pairs of socks so far.  We are so grateful to all our supporters.

Third: Please stay mindful of us and remember us monthly, if you can.

Comfort Socks is so grateful for our supporters. Encouragement comes in the form of phone calls, facebook interaction, donations of resources and socks. I know many of you enjoy reading about those who help, and seeing all the pictures of the smiles with socks - and we enjoy sharing the pleasure side of our mission too - but please, let us not forget why we are here. For every smile you see, there are many more people who do not have a smile to share. I encourage you today to visit our donation page at  http://comfortsocksonline.org/dontoday.php or send your donation to our PO Box 477 Supply, NC 28462. We appreciate your help so much but those you have helped by your support are grateful in a way they cannot express. We have the honor to thank you for them. God Bless You

Sincerely,
Theresa Tese - Comfort Socks Founder

P.S.
Comfort Socks is currently investigating the benefits to a person or entity who has real estate that they may wish to donate to us. If you have a piece of property that you are unable to sell or lease, a donation of that real estate to Comfort Socks would be of interest to us and may be of great benefit to you. Please contact me if you think you may be interested in donating real estate to Comfort Socks.
