About Us

Sometimes Socks Are More Important Than Food

Founded in 2010, The Joy of Sox has collected and distributed hundreds of thousands of new socks to people experiencing homelessness in the Philadelphia area and across the United States! We have even been able to provide comfort to those in need around the world including Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Uganda. Through the generosity of our donors and volunteers, our mission is to provide joy and health to the men, women, and children who experience homelessness by giving them new socks.

The Joy of Sox

3 Steps to Bringing Comfort, Joy & Health

Through sock drives, fundraisers, and direct donations, new socks are donated directly or purchased with funds and sent to our warehouse in Phoenixville, PA.

In our warehouse, our team of volunteers sort new socks for men, women and children which are packed for distribution in our signature purple bags.

This is what it’s all about…finally getting the new socks where they are needed! We distribute new socks to homeless shelters, soup kitchens, clinics, and organizations that help those in need.
