150,483 pairs of new socks for the homeless by The Joy of Sox
150,483. That’s the amazing number of pairs of new socks that The Joy of Sox® has donated to the homeless and needy in the past four years.
So a very special thanks TO all our sock angels and benefactors out there! This could not have been done without you!
And, a very special thanks FROM all the unnamed homeless who have been given joy through a pair of new socks.
The top two photos are piles of donated new socks waiting to be sorted (men, women and children) and packed into boxes for distribution to shelters for the homeless.
The 3rd photo shows our warehouse with cases of new socks ready to be distributed to shelters. The boxes our volunteers pack usually contain either 120 pairs for men, 140 pairs for women, or 200 pairs for children.
The botton photo is a little card that some young volunteer made to go along with a new pair of socks, “Hope your toes are happy in these socks.”
