This winter, we are donating 4,000 pairs of Bombas socks to the ‘Socks in the City’ program at St.Anthony’s Foundation. The non-profit organization proviced nutritious meals, medical care, free clothing, job training, and more to people and families.
Many homeless and low-income families seek new socks, however they are rarely donated by people. The St.Anthony’s Foundation has increased their sock drive collection every year and have made a goal to beat 15,000 pairs of socks this year.
With every pair of socks purchased from Bombas, they in turn donate a pair to someone in need. Without hesitation we ordered a few thousand socks for our customers and received a few thousand more to donate to a charity of our choice.
Although socks seem like such a small clothing item, they are very much needed to keep our feet warm and comfortable, and everyone deserves to have them.
Last winter we donated over 3,000 pairs of socks to Meals On Wheels of San Francisco for their ‘Socks for Seniors’ program. We were thrilled with the success of the program and decided to make a tradition out of it.
3 Ways to Help:
1. Start a sock drive of your own. You can host a sock party, start a competition among your friends or coworkers, or even organize a “sock mob”. You can then deliver or ship your awesome collection to St.Anthony’s!
2. Share our story on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. By sharing our story you can help encourage and inspire others to get involved.
3. If you can’t host a sock drive or if you aren’t into the social media thing – feel free to drop a pack off at the St.Anthony’s.
