For the 12th year in a row, Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel, Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool have teamed up to donate over $13,500 worth of socks and support to local non-profits serving the areas homeless. This fundraising event is a joint effort to help provide warm Merino wool socks and much-needed support to people experiencing homelessness in preparation for the colder months.

In addition, Darn Tough Vermont and Smartwool graciously provided boxes of socks to donate. The organizations receiving the donations include the Community Health Centers, the Good Samaritan Haven in Barre, the Samaritan House in St. Albans, and the JCEO Foodshelf in Plattsburgh.
“We can’t thank Lenny’s enough for their generosity towards our Homeless Healthcare program and the thousands of individuals we serve. High quality socks from Darn Tough and Smartwool, along with the monetary donation, make a huge difference in keeping our patients’ healthy and warm throughout the winter months,” said Kim Anderson, Director of Development and Communications for the Community Health Centers.
