The Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews

The Joy of Sox has been honored with a prestigious 2105 Top-Rated Award by Great Nonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.

“We are super excited to be named a Top-Rated 2015 Nonprofit,” says Tom Costello, Jr., Chief Sock Person for The Joy Of Sox.  We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including surpassing 160,000 pairs of new socks donated to the homeless in the Philly region and across the country.  The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of 5-Star  reviews the we received – reviews written by board members, donors, volunteers and clients.  People posted their personal experience with us.

For example, one person wrote,  “Working with The Joy of Sox has been a true blessing.  It’s amazing to be a part of an organization with as much heart as this one.  The Joy of Sox addresses the extremely necessary, and yet often overlooked need to provide socks to the homeless.  The work this organization does, and the passion and and love the organization does with it, makes The Joy of Sox truly extraordinary.”

While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, The Joy of Sox was part of the inaugural group to qualify this year.  In addition, they will be added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide – an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the year.  Look for this near the holidays.

“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Peria Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with The Joy of Sox have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a creditable organization.  The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results  of this nonprofit.  This award is a form or recognition by the community.
