Comfort Socks

Rating: 5 stars   15 reviews

Issues: Philanthropy

Location: PO Box 477 Supply NC 28462 USA

Mission: Comfort Socks provides new socks to any agency that serves homeless people and families. Putting aside for a moment the hygiene benefit of socks for the homeless, for us, this mission is one of comfort. We provide the secure and comfortable feeling that putting on new pair of socks can give someone who feels lost or forgotten by this world. Every step taken by a homeless person is a painful step Comfort Socks eases that pain with the simple comfort of new socks

Comfort Socks also recognizes that sock drives encourages kindness and purpose for young and old alike. Part of our mission is to inspire others, so that ultimately, the comfort these socks bring can be enjoyed soulfully by the provider and recipient.

Thanks to Comfort Socks for their contribution to our country by way of socks for those in need. Theresa Tese, the founder of Comfort Socks, had a vision for this need and it now has become a huge success. Thank you Theresa.

Comfort Socks truly has a humbled heart like Christ. Providing for those with a real need in a tangible way reminds me of beautiful love Christ gave us by His example of washing feet. Modern day saints. May God continue to bless Comfort Socks beyond measure.

I learned about Comfort Socks through a mutual Facebook friend and decided to present to our church the opportunity to support this wonderful charity. Our church collected socks and we shipped them to Comfort Socks confident that they would be used to help many homeless persons across the USA. It's a great thing that they do!

This organization is based in a little corner on the North Carolina coast. The generosity could have been limited to Brunswick County or even just NC, but instead they are reaching out across our nation. It's hard to fathom when one is not in the situation that after food, socks are the most requested item. It's one of those things that would not come to my mind. Suitcase or other carrying case, clothes, etc, but socks? What a wonderful way to share the warmth of one's heart by bringing the warmth to the feet of those in need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put a box at all the retail outlets selling clothes during the tax-free weekend. People have big hearts, you just have to make it as easy as possible for them to give.

When we go to serve 600+ homeless and low income members of our community in the greater Richmond area, the one thing that we always lacked was enough clean socks. That was before we found out about Comfort Socks! Over the past few years there have been many grateful hearts and big smiles of those who receive their new socks.

I've volunteered with and donated to many worthy charities over the years. But I have to say -- before learning of Comfort Socks, I had not given much thought to the difference a clean, warm pair of socks can make to a homeless person. Theresa's focus and dedication have opened my eyes and made a difference in how I give.

Theresa Tese is the most dedicated person I have ever met in regards to helping the homeless with socks. Homeless people are in great need especially in the cold winter months, and her continued solicitation for socks, greatly helps these people. She deserves only the utmost in reconginition for her dedicated service and hard work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of anything to change. It's great as is.

Comfort Socks is an efficient, focused non profit that does one thing and one thing only - provide thousands of socks to the homeless. President, Theresa Tese is a Spirit filled woman who has put her life into this non-profit and it shows. This non-profit blesses so many people through Theresa's careful organization. Comfort Socks is a unique non-profit because blessings come to both ends of this mission. Anyone can get involved by collecting socks no matter where they live. Many of the young people have stepped up to the plate to collect socks at their schools and it is this non-profits simple mission that allows everyone to take part. God has used Comfort Socks to bless the people the who give socks and the people who receive them.

Comfort Socks is such a blessing to so many people. I had never really thought about how it would be not to have clean socks or any socks for that matter until I learned of the ministry of Comfort Socks. Comfort Socks has reached out to so many homeless and less fortunate people all over the US. They have allowed people that had no hope to know that someone really cares. They are such a compassionate group of people. I really appreciate all that they do to serve. God bless you all!
