10 Years Dedicated to Donating Socks

Socks and underwear are among the most requested, but least donated items at homeless shelters. Our goal over the past decade has been to bring some comfort to those in need by simply providing a clean pair of socks through the hands of our committed partners. This year we’re donating more than 250,000 pairs to our partner shelters and organizations.

Over the past decade, we have been working with homeless shelters, organizations, community groups and individuals from across the country to help create an awareness for those who are homeless or in transitional housing that are often over looked – the invisible people in our communities. Since 2009, we have also been partnering with Mark Horvath (pictured at left handing out socks in Austin) whose nonprofit, Invisible People, is dedicated to educating the public about homelessness.

3 Million Pairs Donated
to Partners

Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than three million pairs of socks to our partners in all 50 states, who have helped give out the donated socks to those in need in communities like yours. You can use the map to discover more about the organizations we’ve partnered with near you.

We know that socks are among the most requested (but least donated) items to homeless shelters, and since 2009, we’ve distributed over 2.5 MILLION pairs of socks across the country. We distribute socks to help make a difference in a material way, but we are also committed to raising awareness of the needs of the homeless and getting individuals engaged and involved.” HANES SOCK DRIVE

The Concord Coalition to End Homelessness recently partnered with Hanes and is a recipient for 2019 of 2,000 socks for men and women.

Socks. Socks are something most of us wear every day.

For our homeless neighbors, it’s hard to find good socks and to replace worn out ones.

@hanes donated 3,000 pairs of socks for our Soup Kitchen and shelter guests. As the temperatures continue to drop, they’ve helped thousands of our neighbors keep their feet warm with their kindness and generosity. We are so thankful for their partnership.

🥶 Brrrr! It’s COLD outside and many kids in Mississippi don’t have the essentials to stay warm, particularly those experiencing #poverty#neglect  and  #homelessness. Thanks to a partnership with Hanes, our staff has 3,000 pairs of socks to distribute to families statewide so our kids’ feet will stay warm this winter. ❤️🧦 #HanesSockDrive  #HanesForGood  #WarmFeet  #HappyHearts  #ThankYou
