Con mucho aprecio y humildad le doy gracias a esta organización por haber viajado como misioneros a Pto. Cortes, Honduras en el 2019 para ayudar a los niños del Orfanato Católico. Los niños recibieron regalos para uso en escuelas y recreación. Es un placer haber trabajado a lado de Sock It!! Muchas bendiciones en sus misiones!

After surviving not one, but two, horrible hurricanes this season (2020), Sock’n It delivered us an essential commodity...clean, warm, dry socks. My children and I were displaced. You won’t know how much clean, warm socks mean to a mother with four children until you’re in a shelter, cold and in need. I can’t thank you all enough. I’ll always support and help this organization in any way I can. May God bless you all. ~ Lake Charles Hurricane Survivor 2020

It my duty to give. This organization have helped countless people, from all walks of life. Their mission is plain. To cover as many feet as they can. Who would not want to take part of such an awesome mission. My giving came through my business. So I didn't do it alone by far. Every client bought a bag of socks and flip flops of all size. For men, women, and children. Even babies. It brings joy to help others. I applaud the work of this organization.

The mission of "Sock It" is a mission that touch many lives. My friend introduced me to it about 3 years ago. I'm a salon owner, and my clients never fail to participate in whatever I ask them because they know it's a mission that I believe in. Together we connected many socks of different colors and sizes. From infants to adults. This organization profits others and I'm so glad they do. Love thy neighbor.

Sock n It! Is a wonderful humanitarian organization. They care about the less fortunate. I have participated in their sock drives by donating socks which were delivered to evacuees in Lake Charles, La shelter during Hurricane Harvey. We need more organizations that a “big heart” like Sock n It!.

I'm a street volunteer distributing socks from Lake Charles to New Orleans. There is nothing to compare to the gratefulness of individuals experiencing being homeless when given the simple gift of a pair of socks. We meet homeless people where they are - "roughing it" on the streets, under bridges and overpasses, in abandoned vehicles which includes homeless veterans and homeless youth. Thank you for doing what you do. And a big "thank you" for all of the ziplock bags with sanitary products for homeless women. GOD bless Sock'n It!

Being an advocate for the homeless.. here in California...I often cook at home and drive to different locations,(streets,bridges, stores, to abandoned vehicles, etc,) and feed them. Along with their food. I also pass out socks. Wow, you would think they have struck gold!! They are so happy to recieve them. Men women and children!! So many of the adults have sores or blisters on their feet..an some feet are so swollen. The socks are extremely helpful to them. One little girl ask if can I give her grandmother a pair because she gave her only socks to her and her sister and could I please give her dad an extra pair...because he walks everyday to try to find work..and it's cold and his socks have so many holes. This kid was about 6yrs old. It brought me to tears. Another little girl was walking with her mom and when I handed the mom a plate of food...then the socks...the little girl..about 3yrs old...sat down right there on the the sidewalk...and immediately put the socks on. Thanks so much for Sock’n It! and their dedication too and usefulness. Sock’n It! really makes a differnce.

SOCK N IT has had an impact on me from the very start...prior to this
initial introduction, it never entered my mind that there are thousands
of homeless and other poor people who are SOCKLESS every day. For SOCK N IT to recognize this issue and step in by delivering new socks to the needy and to communities
hit by weather disasters (since Hurricane Katrina), has touched my heart...yes, I am a Sock N IT supporter that SOCK N IT can depend on.

As an educator, we appreciate the volunteer experiences Sock’n It! affords students. As a volunteer, delivering socks to women with children living in shelters was an amazing experience. To see the delight in someone’s eyes when given a pair of socks was truly heart warming. These are the people who truly need socks. I helped Sock’n It! bundle and tie hundreds of pairs of socks with a beautiful Christmas bow for women, children and men in shelters. I look forward to volunteering this year for the Christmas deliveries to shelters. GOD bless the mission of Sock’n It!

I was a student in 10th grade when I volunteered to count and sort socks to deliver to homeless youth in New Orleans. This was an experience that I will remember for a long time. Sock’n It! helped me to understand how important volunteering to help less fortunate individuals is very important. Thank you for the experience!

This is such a great non-profit organization. We partnered with this organization as one of our community service projects. I was a student volunteer and we collected socks in our town . It was a very humbling experience to learn about people who were less fortunate than I was. Likewise, it was empowering because I was able learn about this organization and see how my contribution made a difference. I was honored to be able to contribute to this organization and be able to give back to my community.

I was a student volunteer with Sock’n It! After Hurricane Harvey we delivered hundreds of pairs of socks to a mega shelter near Alexandria, LA. The evacuees were very happy for the socks. I will always remember that experience. Thank you Sock’n It! I look forward to volunteering again.

They are always ready and able to assist all who are in need. Let's honor Sock'n It for their service and dedication to serve all who are in need any where in the world. Thanks for the HAPPINESS and LOVE that they give. May it be shown back to them. Much Success and Prosperity and Blessings Always

I wish I could rate this organization 10 STARS! Sockin’ It attends to the basic but most important needs of individuals struck with catastrophes (hurricanes/flooding) and even those in an unfortunate season in life (the homeless). I have witnessed the heartfelt joy and gratitude of people blessed with socks/flip slips. Sockin’ It helps people take their first “comfortable” and “covered” step after life has had them stumble. One million THANK YOUs to this wonderful and most appreciated organization.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (Ten Stars)

Sock' n It a nonprofit organization has helped the less fortunate people with socks and flip flops wherever needed. I have been helping distribute these items for a few years. I began purchasing various socks for all ages and taking them to the shelters in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California. Since then I have relocated to New Iberia. LA and continued to help by volunteering with Sock'n It to help people every where. I feel rewarded when I see the smiles and appreciation on their faces.

Just to let you know that Sock-It Nonprofit organization has been a blessing to many young children in the Houston and surrounding areas.
They have sent some to a mission's trip to Cuba, Mexico, New Mexico Indian Reservation. They were given to much needed situations. They have been a blessing and have come through each time when asked for the donations. I really appreciate how organized they are plus their helpfulness for fast service and again the children were happy. Their smiley faces is very rewarding.
We appreciate your hard work and considerate duty to the community. Thank you for pouring into the people
and acknowledging the necessary need there is. Socks something so insignificant but yet so important to many. We believe they are God sent. We thank all the people that have donated, the stores and all the individuals. Thank you very much for your donations and to make Sock-It Nonprofit organization a possibility to those who very much need this. God bless and thank you!
