Crescent Sock Company donated pairs of its World’s Softest socks to nonprofit Wellspring Living.
Just in time for the holidays, Crescent Sock Company — a vendor of The Link Companies — donated 7,740 pairs of fuzzy slipper socks to Wellspring Living, an Atlanta-based nonprofit that serves survivors of sex trafficking and those at risk.
“This incredibly generous donation could not have come at a better time,” said Mary Frances Bowley, executive director of Wellspring Living. “Each and every year, we strive to make the holiday season special for our participants…youth and women who have faced unimaginable trauma, many of whom have never been able to celebrate Christmas.
“Fuzzy socks are always a highly requested item and we are thrilled that we will be able to grant that wish for each participant. What may seem like a small gift to some means the world to those we serve!”
Included in the donated items by Crescent Sock Company were pairs of its World’s Softest cozy slippers.
“As a women-owned and woman-run small business, we wanted to donate to organizations throughout the country with a focus on helping women,” said Heather Lingerfelt, director of sales for Crescent Sock Company. “We love what Wellspring Living stands for everyday.”
Founded in 2001, Wellspring Living provides domestic sex trafficking victims and those at risk with specialized recovery services through three residential programs and two community-based programs. The programs focus on developing participants’ courage to move forward and their confidence to succeed.
According to Sarah Richardson, development director at Wellspring Living, The Link Companies has been a fantastic partner of Wellspring Living for many years.
“Not only have they contributed monetarily and with other in-kind donations, but they make a conscious effort to bring awareness to the horrific realities of sex trafficking through their large network of vendors and like-minded businesses,” Richardson said. “We are grateful that they have made another wonderful connection to benefit our participants.”
