Feats of love by people who love.

Imagine living on the street without the ability to clean the only pair of socks you own.  Imagine walking is your only mode of transportation.  Imagine being exposed to life-threatening diseases because of socks.  Imagine having only 1 pair of socks to wear.  

Socks are the least donated clothing item.  However, regardless of the season, they are the #1 need in homeless shelters.  

Year-round socks go a long way to ensure the health and well-being of men, women and children living on the street.  

Sean Ballentine of NYC Relief:

Many on the streets develop horrible skin problems which lead to ulcers and rotting flesh.  This is due to exposure to the weather (wetness, cold) and inability to take proper care of their physical needs.  Often times a doctor would order bed rest or time to heal up.  These are impossible to attain when you are on your feet constantly. 

With your help, we could accomplish a feat of love by caring for people’s feet! 

Imagine thousands Walking in Love with fresh, new socks.  

With NYC Relief we’re making it our mission to love and care for the broken, hurting and needy living on the streets.
