What is #COVIDSOCKS Drive?
Inspired by a heart-felt request for help from an Oregon CNA and the #covidsocks posts by caregivers on social media, we were moved to know that our product can make such a difference and help in a non-obvious way. We immediately reached out to local medical centers across the Portland metro area, and have already donated to Legacy, OHSU, and Providence for internal distribution to their caregivers and patients. However, Providence Medical Group indicated a strong, ongoing need for caregivers in their locations. We've worked with them to develop a program that allows us to safely deliver some much welcomed morale bosters during this crisis.
Goal: 1200 Pairs to Providence Caregivers
We've partnered with Providence Medical Group to facilitate the distribution of our smile-inducing fun socks to 10 of their foundation locations here in Oregon. While our original donation of 115 pairs has helped, we'd like to do even more, and with your help, we can!
Celebrating Each Others' Gifts
Providence goal is to connect people to advance research, health care and wellness, and they do this through their compassion, fostering unity, celebrating the gifts in one another, and authenticity. We're proud to support these values in medical care as a company that strives to celebrate the connections between humans with similar values and goals.

For now, if you still want to donate: please do! We've updated our goal to 1200 pairs to continue supplying Providence caregivers with comfortable and fun socks.
