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 is located in the infamous Tenderloin district of San Francisco. They offer hot meals, medical assistance, free clothing, and more.
The homeless and low-income families are always seeking new socks, as they are rarely donated by people. We have discovered in our two years of donating socks, that the small clothing item is actually the most needed in shelters. The St.Anthony’s Foundation has dedicated a portion of their free clothing program to collecting socks for their ‘Socks in the City’ program.
Bombas is a great company that helps organizations like St. Anthony’s. 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.
