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.

Our church has collected socks and bandanas several times for Comfort Socks to distribute to the homeless. This is a wonderful charity/mission that works hard year round to help keep clean dry socks on the feet of those who have the greatest of need. May God richly bless you all and your contributors as well as those receiving.

I am proud to know such a women of integrity .She not only stores them, and packs them , she will go practically anywhere to help the homeless.

Comforts Socks lives up to their slogan, "Comfort the Feet, Comfort the Soul", by touching the lives of so many in need far and wide by one simple gesture, providing socks. Through providing this item (that many take for granted) to those in need they are extending a physical hand of Christ, showing love and kindness, and oneness with those of our fellow men and woman who are experiencing a time of great need (materially, spiritually, physically and emotionally). To some they may see it as just a pair of socks, but I have seen firsthand that it is so much more than that. To anyone who doubts, I challenge you to go visit a local homeless populated area and take socks to the individuals there, then you will know firsthand why what Comfort Socks does is so very important. May they continue to do what they do for many, many years and may the message of hope through Jesus Christ travel alongside with them!

I have been working closely with Comfort Socks for 8 years now. I love that they serve the homeless all over the country and make sure the homeless veterans always have socks. This is one great and caring charity.

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.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
