Helping the homeless by providing socks

Video

Body

A local woman’s effort has supplied homeless people across the country with nearly 4,200 pairs of socks.

Theresa Tese founded Comfort Socks, a charity that collects and delivers socks to the homeless.

She made a delivery Monday to Early Bread Ministry at the Church of Saint Peter the Fisherman in Wilmington.

Comfort Socks has supplied socks to people as far away as New Mexico, New York City, and Florida.

Tese says socks are one of the items homeless people say they need most. “This is something I know will help them, and if I just concentrate on one thing, just do the socks, then someone else does something else, and pretty much it’ll all get done.”

You can donate socks, money, or your time to Comfort Socks by visiting their web site.
