  |  October 10, 2020

Family Promise of Jacksonville received 2,750 pairs of Bombas socks valued at $33,000, sharing 1,750 pairs with four partner agencies. Bombas Socks had donated 50,000 pairs of socks to 25 Family Promise affiliates across the nation as part of its policy to donate a pair for every sock purchased by the public.

. . .

Changing Homelessness, a Riverside-based nonprofit with the mission to prevent and end homelessness, included one pair of socks in each of the 500 hygiene packets it distributed during the annual Point In Time Count. Formed in 1974 by a group of concerned social service agencies and religious leaders, Changing Homelessness manages $7 million in local, state, and federal funds. The nonprofit works by advocating, convening, and educating the community through the Northeast Florida Continuum of Care and initiatives like Built for Zero.
