Sock Sale Donation 2021
For the eleventh year in a row, we have teamed up with Darn Tough Vermont Socks and Smartwool to donate over $13,500 worth of socks and support to local non-profits serving those in need in our community.
This fundraising event was a joint effort to help provide warm Merino wool socks and much-needed support to people experiencing homelessness in preparation for the colder months.
From September 9th-11th, we held our eleventh annual Charity Sock Sale, and pledged to make a monetary donation for each pair of Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool socks sold during the sale. In addition, Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool graciously provided boxes of socks to donate. The organizations receiving the donations include the Community Health Centers of Burlington, the Good Samaritan Haven, Martha's Community Kitchen in St. Albans, and the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity - JCEO in Plattsburgh, NY.
"Lenny's sets a high standard for community engagement, empathy and generosity,” said John Bernardi, President and CEO of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. “We often use their examples to inspire others. What more could you ask of a local business?”
“We are fortunate and grateful to have the continued support of Lenny’s and their customers for the 11th annual sock sale,” said Nicole Laurin, JCEO Development Director. “These socks are distributed to local individuals in need across our two county service areas; including to other organizations who provide direct service to ensure that they get to the people in our
community who need them, when they need them.”
To date, we have donated over $150,000 worth of socks and support to our community, thanks to all of you!
