Thank You, Socks Collectors

As it poured rain as the Lord poured out His love at Sharon United Methodist Church on August 12. We were honored to share in His presence and our mission at both services. Thank you, Pastor Eddie for opening up so much about our mission, and Sharon UMC Women, for remembering us and working so hard on keeping the socks flowing. The http://www.sharonbythesea.com/ sock drive will continue though the September.

Thank You Contributors - for your Faithfulness

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. 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. 

Your support of Comfort Socks has allowed us to receive 38,708 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.

Do you own real estate may wish to donate to us? Did you know that under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax after 2012? Now might be a good time to consider the tax benefits of donating property to a non-profit like Comfort Socks. 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 so we can discuss these opportunities.
