Staff at Atrium at Liberty Park assisted living facility are used to being on the receiving end of giving campaigns. But this year, they decided to turn the tables by donating one important item to their residents and the homeless population.
Today feels like Christmas morning at Atrium. Vicki Einhorn is the sales director at Atrium at Liberty Park. “I want everybody to have something new on their bed Christmas morning,” said Einhorn.
She says people donate to Atrium all throughout the year and give all kinds of different items. This year, just in time for Christmas, they’re getting Bombas socks.
Vicki may have had something to do with this particular donation.
“I sent them an email and I told him my story and I said ‘I really would love to see people get something new to open up, the homeless, people up in the hospital and the skilled and those currently in my wishes’ and they sent us, the Atrium 750 pairs of socks to distribute wherever we would like,” Einhorn said.
Bombas is a one for one company, meaning they make a point of donating a pair of socks for every pair they sell. They say the reason they do this is because the most requested clothing item in homeless shelters is socks.
So, with bags full of gifts and treats, they got all masked up and delivered what they’re calling “socks of love.”
“It made me feel really good because I know we’re giving back because not everybody, especially in these times, you know, they’ve been furloughed, laid off, they don’t have any money, no extras… What a pair of fresh socks on your feet?” Einhorn said.
