We really are different!-01.png

WORTHY SOCKS is "About Them" - our homeless friends. It is not about us. We are not a retailer or a wholesaler of socks. WORTHY SOCKS purchases quality, cotton socks at bulk prices, stretching donor dollars while benefitting our partners and their guests. 


We have no ambition or desire to profit by the initiatives of WORTHY SOCKS other than the satisfaction gained by partnering with front line organizations who are dedicated to serving the homeless community. Our hope is that WORTHY SOCKS can play a small role that leads to our homeless friends and neighbors feeling valued and loved.

We are long time Memphians. I'm a Mississippi native. My wife was born and raised in Memphis. After making Memphis our home for 35 years, we moved back to Mississippi in 2023. WORTHY SOCKS continues to be a Tennessee based nonprofit charity. During our lifetime, we have been blessed and inspired by wonderful families and friends - extraordinarily selfless people, full of compassion. Like "frontline" organizations CONSTANCE ABBEY, MANNA HOUSE, JAKE FOLGER OUTREACH, BEAUTIFUL FEET MINISTRIES, NEIGHBORHOOD CHRISTIAN CENTER, MATTHEW 25 MINISTRIES, SALVATION ARMY, ST FRANCIS SOUP KITCHEN, MISSION: SOCKS, HUMBOLT COUNTY OUTREACH, their servant hearts have been an inspiration for WORTHY SOCKS.


Whether through WORTHY SOCKS or by engaging with other organizations centered around helping others in time of need, please consider how you could lend a hand in restoring dignity and hope for those who need it most.
