We were delighted to present our first charity sock donation to a local Homeless Charity based in Limerick, Novas. Our MD Eoghan and Paul presented Novas with approximately 270 pairs of premium quality socks.
Novas’ Street Outreach has been operating in the city for more than a decade, supporting people who are homeless or on the margins of society on a nightly basis. The service offers a warm meal, tea, coffee, baked goods, toiletries and clothes to up to 40 clients a night.
Tracey McCarthy, who manages the volunteer-led service, says they are ’very grateful for the donation. Socks, along with other outerwear, are always requested by our clients, so it is wonderful to receive such a generous donation at this time. We hope it can be the start of a collaboration that benefits our clients on a longer term basis.’
Sic Sock MD, Eoghan Carroll states that ‘when we launched SicSock.com, we did so with the intention of giving back in some capacity. Homelessness is a huge issue here in Ireland, and clean, fresh socks are one of the most sought-after items at shelters and charities. As our company grows, we are committed to matching our sales to our donations. We are proudly based in Limerick and since charity begins at home, we are kicking things off by supporting our local organisations. By the end of the year, we hope to donate more than 20,000 pairs to those sleeping rough around the country.
