Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Philanthropy, Public Foundations

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.

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.

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.

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.
