Diabetic sock company partners with Soles4Soles to increase sock donations for U.S. homeless. The disparity in diabetes prevalence vs. the regular population is estimated to be over 50% in the homeless population. Sugar Free Sox will donate a pair for every pair sold through May 31.
(PRWEB) April 27, 2010 -- Sugar Free Sox announced today that for every pair of their diabetic socks sold the company will donate a pair to the U.S. Homeless. The donation drive is underway and will last until May 31. The one pair for every pair sold program will be implemented in partnership with Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity. Soles4Souls has donated more than 8 million pairs of shoes worldwide, and most recently committed more than 1.3 million pairs to the victims of the Haitian earthquake.
Sugar Free Sox is committed to helping the U.S. Homeless community with the overwhelming need for proper footwear.

“We are excited about our partnership with Sugar Free Sox and their generous commitment,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Their donation can truly change someone’s life, and brands like Sugar Free Sox are making a huge impact on the community with their long-term commitments to make a difference.”
