Comfort Socks (www.comfortsocksonline.org)is a 501(c)3 public charity that collects new socks from individuals, schools, companies, and apparel manufacturers. We then distribute the socks to homeless shelters, non-profit organizations who primarily serve the homeless, and to church and veteran homeless programs. Our mission is simple - Comfort- It just feels good to put on a new pair of socks, and we believe this warm and comfortable feeling can help to ease the pain of someone who feels lost or forgotten by this world. Comfort Socks stretches its service to homeless shelters coast to coast across America. We welcome volunteers and encourage sock drives and donations. Please keep us in your prayers and on your donation list -

Sock drives are easy and fun - and can make such a huge difference in your life and the lives of others. Won't you be a part of our Faith in Action - We welcome your spirit to help others.

Comfort Socks Loves the Good Life Paper

The Good Life Papers is an amazing testimony. One day, while vacationing in the mountains, a Good Life Paper found it's way into the hands of Leslie Averitt. She felt so inspired, and could not put it down. After contacting the publisher, Leslie knew this was the path for her, so she worked out the details, and her first issue of the Good Life Paper was ready in Oct 2005, just 6 weeks after meeting with the publisher.

Leslie lets the Lord lead her each month, so it is no wonder that many find exactly what they need when they read it. She is an inspiration, trusting that it all will come together each and every month, and it always does. Faith leads to the blessing of faithfulness from our Father. 

Thank you, Leslie, for being such an inspiration to me and to so many others, and for creating a way to spread the Good Life - through printed word and through your spirit, faith and dedication, and yes, some very long hours.

Supported by donations, prayers and advertising dollars, the Good Life Paper will celebrate it's 5 year anniversary this summer. Leslie has help from a dedicated graphic artist, Manon, who does a wonderful job.

The Good Life paper is available online, and is FREE in printed form and is just a click away at http://www.thegoodlifepaper.com.

We have been blessed by Patricia Montesano who has allowed us to post her poem on our website. The Poem is called "Homeless Feet"

Yes, it mentions how socks are a comfort.

Please read it when you get a minute. You can find the link on the heartfelt comments page of the Comfort Socks, or at the link below.
