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.

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!

Comfort Socks has been a blessing to the homeless in Richmond Virginia. For the past 3 years Comfort Socks has helped by providing socks for us to distribute at Homeward VA's "Homeless Connect" event. Our church provides donated clothing to individuals in our community who are homeless or facing homelessness. Without Comfort Socks support we wouldn't have enough socks to distribute during this event.

Comfort Socks is an amazing organization! I work with StandUp For Kids Seattle, a nonprofit organization that works directly with homeless youth. Our mission is to reach kids who are living on the street and to help in whatever way we can. Comfort Socks has been our wonderful partner in providing something essential and treasured to these kids -- clean, fresh socks.

We are forever grateful to Comfort Socks for their incredible dedication in this important mission!
