MEssages from sock RecEivers

"I was at a free dental convention last month and received your [Socks4Love socks] and wanted to let you know that I received the love that you shared whole heartedly. I believe that your ministry is a great idea as there are many people out there in need whose circumstances lead them to have to neglect some of the basic necessities. I pray that your ministry grows and I know that people of any economic background will find your socks of love charming and beneficial. If you are in need of a helping hand to distribute socks of love throughout the Tampa area please feel free to contact me. I have been involved in many outreaches and would love to serve if needed. All in all, a warm thank you for your [Socks4Love were] a blessing to my heart after a long day of dental pains. May God bless you all in the Name of Jesus Christ."

"Thank you for the Socks4Love. They were happy to get new tube socks and thrilled they were filled with toothbrushes, tooth-paste, sunscreen, and lotion. Your generosity was greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dr. Monticciolo, Isabella, & Sophia for blessing Cuba with Socks4Love." 

"Thank you so much for your recent donation of 150 socks filled with hygiene products. Both our homeless brothers and sisters as well as the needy families we serve are grateful recipients of your generous donation. Thank you for your support of the Kaye Prox Food Bank and for sharing your resources with those less fortunate." 

"Essar is one of [Chapel in the Pines'] pantry volunteers. Essar is an 86 year old man born in British Guinea. One of eighteen children, Essar has a passion for helping others. Every Monday, Essar meets [Judy Maxwell, pantry volunteer] and [they] load loaves of bread for her to distribute. Now she will deliver a loaf of bread and a Socks4Love. Thanks for allowing Chapel in the Pines Pantry the opportunity to share the love. God bless you and your family." 

"Thank you to the young lady for the hard work assembling the Socks4Love."
