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.

Comfort socks is a wonderful organization that helps so many by providing socks for the homeless. Theresa Tese the founder of this organization is driven by her compassion, love, empathy and her Christian values to carry out the Lords word and always lend a helping hand to someone less fortunate. This organization is one that our country should be proud of. We need more people like Theresa Tese and her volunteers that unselfishly give their time, and support to others. May this organization continue to be successful, grow and be provided with the necessary resources to carry out this amazing service.

I absolutely love socks. Comfort Socks Rocks in my book. I remember living on the streets addicted to meth and my socks almost rotting off my feet I was so high. A new pair and a shower worked a miracle in my life. I spend my days givings socks out to homeless people and helping to encourage them to try something different. I met comfort socks through a friend that works with my favorite people. Teresa Tese at comfort socks loves homeless people and has heart to get socks to as many homeless shelters and people across America. They are movement on the move. I nominate them for Nonprofit of the year. So can you by giving, praying for, and getting the word out.

Comfort Socks provides more than socks....they offer warmth, compassion, christian love, and peace of mind to those in need. Our church offers a program called "Room in the Inn". We pick up 8 homeless men and bring them back to church where we offer them warm showers, their own room for the night, dinner and breakfast and lunch the next day. When they find their bed - they receive a few pairs of "Comfort Socks". They are always extremely grateful to have new socks to replace the ones they have. We are so thankful to have partnered with Comfort Socks! This organization is top-notch!

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.
