Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens is so excited and incredibly thankful to Bombas Socks for their generous donation of 10,000 pairs of socks received through the Bombas Socks Giving Program. Over the next few weeks, Catholic Charities will sort and distribute the donated socks across our food pantry network, as a way to provide comfort and share hope to individuals and families in need.
Bombas is a comfort-focused, basics apparel brand with a mission to help those in need. The company was originally founded in 2013 because socks are the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters. Underwear and t-shirts are #2 and #3 respectively. While the brand started with and is known for its extremely comfortable socks, Bombas used its expertise in comfort to launch into apparel with t-shirts in 2019 and most recently, underwear in 2021. For every item purchased, a specially-designed item is donated to someone at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness. To date, Bombas has donated over 100 million items.
