With your help, we can change the world, one pair of socks at a time.
The purpose of Gospel Socks is to provide new socks to those in need while also sharing the love of Jesus. Gospel Socks has provided over 60,000 pairs of socks to homeless shelters, hurricane shelters, and children in foster care around the state, and even in Japan! We have reached so many people in need, protecting their feet while sharing the good news of Jesus at the same time! Together we bring Christ to thousands and give new socks to those in need.
How We Got Started
At the age of 12, Emily West, made it her mission to collect and donate new socks to help the homeless. So with the help of her family, she created Gospel Socks.
“In February of 2017, I was on a choir trip in San Antonio, TX. I had so much fun but saw so many homeless people that needed help. I wanted to do something about it. I came home to Fort Worth and talked with my family and we talked about ways we could help. Our church talks about sharing the Gospel (the good news about Jesus) with the spiritually disconnected, equipping families, and defending those in need. We thought socks might be an item that people need and we talked with a local shelter and found out it is the number one clothing need, and on February 10, 2017, the Gospel Socks idea was born. We decided to put a verse from the Bible (1 John 4:9) on each pair of socks, to share Jesus and hopefully warm their hearts as we warm their feet! With your help, we can change the world, one pair of socks at a time.” -Emily West
