"Helping restore a feeling of dignity by providing quality socks to the homeless."
Each month, WORTHY SOCKS delivers brand new, quality, comfortable socks to Memphis frontline organizations dedicated to those experiencing homelessness and poverty. Our goal is to help restore worthiness and hope to forgotten friends and neighbors.
Helping one person might not change the world,
but it could change the world for one person.

Socks for the homeless are one of the most needed items at homeless shelters and hospitality homes. They are also one of the least donated.
Most of us never have to stop and think about socks. We have a drawer full of clean, dry socks that we can go to anytime we choose. We get to change socks by simply walking straight to our sock drawer. Unfortunately, for those who do not have a home, it frequently means walking 5-10 miles every day seeking life's bare necessities. Those walks are often made with incorrectly sized shoes and socks that are dirty, worn out, and many times soaking wet.
One of the primary reasons a homeless person goes to the emergency room is related to serious foot ailments. Many times those ailments are related to wearing unhealthy socks. Fresh, clean, comfortable socks is the answer.
That is where WORTHY SOCKS comes in - ensuring that our dedicated frontline partners (who directly serve the homeless) have an ongoing supply of quality, new, comfortable socks.

People who have experienced homelessness say that small acts of kindness can be profoundly meaningful. Your gift today goes to work immediately in providing brand new, comfortable, clean, dry socks for the homeless.
We're different from designer sock campaigns. Instead of buy one/give one, we focus on a cost effective donation approach. Quality socks for the homeless. Exceptional value for donors.
