Businesses Partner to Provide Over $12,500 of Socks and Support to Vermont's Homeless
Lenny's Shoe & Apparel, Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool team up again to help Vermont homeless shelters
WILLISTON, VT - For the third year in a row, Lenny's Shoe & Apparel, Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool have teamed up to donate over $12,500 worth of socks and support to representatives from local homeless shelters.
The donations are the result of a joint effort between the three businesses to help provide warm, Merino wool socks and much-needed support to Vermont's homeless population in preparation for the state's colder months.
Over the weekend of September 5-8, Lenny's Shoe & Apparel held their third annual Charity Sock Sale. Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool agreed to donate one pair of socks for each pair sold of their respective brands at Lenny's stores across Vermont during the sale. In addition to the sock donation, Lenny's made a monetary donation for each pair sold. The organizations receiving the donations include the Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS) in Williston, the Samaritan House in St. Albans, and the Good Samaritan Haven in Barre.
To date, Lenny's has donated over $44,000 worth of socks and support to these shelters.
