Hanes Donates 550,000 Socks For Shelter Residents & Sandy Survivors

A clean pair of socks is something that most people take for granted. But did you know that socks are the number one requested item at our homeless shelters?

So we’re ecstatic to announce that Hanes, America’s #1 sock brand, is once again warming the hearts and feet of our shelter residents by donating 250,000 pairs of socks to our residential facilities. Additionally, the company is providing 25,000 pairs of socks for Superstorm Sandy survivors, to be distributed in the hardest hit areas of New York and New Jersey where The Salvation Army continues to serve.

In previous years, the company has hosted a Virtual Sock Drive that asked folks to click ‘Like’ their Facebook page to make an immediate sock donation to The Salvation Army. But this year, Hanes is making a flat out donation to the Army, with or without the help of Facebook users. So for their wonderful support of Americans in need this holiday season, please help us show them some love by liking Hanes’ Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/Hanes! You can also find them on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/Hanes.

A huge thank you to Hanes for their wonderful generosity!
