2019 Lenny's Exclusive VT Barn Darn Tough Sock Donation
Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel donates $4,132 for the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf
For the third year in a row, we teamed up with Darn Tough Vermont to create a special limited-edition sock. The VT Barn Darn Tough Sock was released exclusively at our stores in October, and sold out by mid-December! In tribute to the Vermont lifestyle, these socks honored the barns that bring our communities together. For this year's fundraiser, we donated $2.00 from every pair sold to the Vermont Foodbank in Barre and JCEO Foodshelf in Plattsburgh.
“This has become a much-anticipated holiday gift for our customers,” said our Marketing Director Amanda Cashin. “We are thrilled to continue this tradition with Darn Tough and will be releasing a new, limited-edition sock design next holiday season!”
“This support means so much to our neighbors facing hunger,” says Vermont Foodbank CEO, John Sayles. “Thanks to Lenny’s and their customers, the one in four Vermonters who struggle to put food on the table will have a place to turn to feed themselves and their families. There is no better gift you could give to our community. Thank you Lenny’s!”
Over the past eight years, we have donated over $137,000 to the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf. We greatly appreciate everyone who purchased a pair of the VT Barn Darn Tough Sock this year - this kind of donation would not be possible without your support!
