Comfort Socks reminds you that you may purchase socks from any online store, and have the socks shipped directly to us. In addition to this means of support, Comfort Socks has also joined with Operation Warm Feet as another way to help.
What is Operation Warm Feet? An easy question to answer.
Here is the Press Release just send out to the internet world.
Minneapolis—January 20, 2010—AOI Marketing and Rovrr partnered to create Operation Warm Feet, an online program that makes it easy to donate socks to homeless shelters.AOI and Rovrr discovered through directors of local shelters that there is a shortage of socks for the homeless.
“With in-kind donations, it is easy for people to overlook and take
for granted basic needs like socks,” stated Clara Braddock, Salvation
Army Harbor Lights Center in Minneapolis. She continued, “New, clean
socks are highly valued by our clients and we just don’t always have
enough for everyone.”
Operation Warm Feet is one of the first programs of its kind to
connect socks and other in-kind donations directly to shelters in a
fully customized online environment.
“We wanted to simplify the in-kind donation process and make it
easier for donors to respond to urgent needs of local charities,” said
Jennifer Katz, CEO of AOI Marketing. She continued, “Now, with a few
clicks through the
Operation Warm Feet website, anyone can donate and
feel confident that the socks and other items they send will be
delivered directly to the shelter of their choice.”
At launch, Operation Warm Feet has the support of fifteen homeless
shelters. Most supporting shelters are based in Minnesota. Donors
simply select the shelter of their choice and purchase socks.
“Because nearly sixty percent of our guests are children, we always
have a need for the basics like socks and diapers. As an Operation
Warm Feet partner, it’ll be easier for us to fulfill these needs and
allocate more resources to families who need help,” said Amy Jenkins,
Director of Development at People Serving People in Minneapolis.
