During our 2017 campaign, Hanes donated 225,000 pairs of socks and 18,000 pairs of underwear to organizations fighting homelessness across the United States. Since the program began in 2009, the brand has provided more than 2 million pairs of socks to help people experiencing homelessness. Additionally, the company partnered with Manda, David and Mary – introduced to the brand by Mark Horvath, an advocate for the homeless and founder of Invisible People – who shared their stories of living with homelessness, which you can experience for yourself below.

Giving a Face to Homelessness

Comfort is a Human Right

Every single night in America more than half a million people experience homelessness, sleeping in emergency shelters, transitional housing, or even on the street. Every year approximately 3.5 million men, women and children will experience homelessness. Over a million of these people are employed full or part-time. Help us provide comfort to those in need by donating to one of our partner agencies who work every day to support people experiencing homelessness.

A History of Comfort

Socks are some of the most needed items for those experiencing homelessness – they walk an average of 10 miles per day, putting more wear on their socks in a week than the average American does in a year. That’s one reason Hanes began the National Sock Drive, which, in partnership with the Salvation Army, has distributed 2.1 million pairs of socks since 2009, 200,000 of which were in the last year alone. We’re lucky to partner with Mark Horvath, an advocate for people experiencing homelessness and founder of Invisible People, an organization that aims to change the face of homelessness through storytelling.
