Comfort Socks Newsletter - May 2012 - Socks for the Homeless
Chris Chaddell, director of Lifeline Ministries of Ky,
shared with us the impact that Comfort Socks has on Lifelines monthly
outreach to the homeless. I am privileged to share this with you
The little girl and her sister walked bare foot to our center with no
shoes and socks on their feet (yes, this actually happened in this day
and age!) You can imagine the blessing and honor it was for our
ministry team to send these little girls home
with brand new socks and several pairs of shoes a piece as well.
This would not have been possible had God not connected Comfort Socks
with LifeLine Ministries of NKY several years ago. Thousands have
had their lives enriched and made more comfortable because they've
received brand new socks. You can help LIFELINE receive a free brand
new Toyota Truck for their ministry by voting for them on June 8th -

thought that I wouldn't be able to bear losing this person, so I
proposed to him", Lee said on the SBS program "Midnight TV
Entertainment" on Sept. 2. "I once saw him wearing socks that didn't
match and knew that I wanted to be the person who would make sure he
had matching socks for the rest of his life". Read the whole story
From the Movie Forest Gump
Dan: "There is one item of G.I. gear that can be the difference between
a live grunt and a dead grunt. Socks. Cushioned sole, O.D. green. Try
and keep your feet dry. When we're out humpin', I want you boys te
remember to change your socks whenever we stop. The Mekong will eat a
grunts feet right off his legs."
A Great Big Thank You to
our Sock Collectors
has done it again - we needed socks and they delivered. The socks are
sure to bring a much needed relief to the homeless. Please check them
out and give them some business. They have great merchandise and even
greater prices (cute sun dresses too). http://northpines.org/index.html Thank You Northpines, we appreciate you.
Susie - our Comfort Box volunteer in Florida

Thank You Contributors - for your FaithfulnessComfort 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
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
Your support of Comfort Socks has allowed us to receive 37,267 pairs of socks so far. We are so grateful to all our supporters. First: We wish Comfort and Compassion are known by our actions and to all sock recipients. Second: We pray for Blessings for our supporters, sock recipients, and those without a home. Third: Please stay mindful of us and remember us monthly, if you can. Special Thanks to New Life Christian Fellowship for allowing us the use of their facilities and for their prayers and support for our mission and for those without a home.New Life Christian Fellowship

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
