WARM TOES FOR EVERYONE

The Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) is pleased to announce the Warm Toes Fund, which provides socks and underwear for those in our community who are in need of these essentials. Socks and underwear are rarely included in clothing donations, yet they are essential to comfort and dignity. This fund will be perpetual, with sums provided directly to schools and health and human services organizations to provide socks and underwear for those in need.

JCOGS was pleased and astonished when one hour after initiating this fund, the sock company Bombas reached out to donate 1000 pairs of socks. This week, JCOGS will be delivering these Bombas socks to schools and organizations in the community who have requested some to have on hand for those in need. Among recipients are the North Central Vermont Recovery Center, Lamoille Family Center, and the Clarina Howard Nichols Center, as well as several schools across three districts. 

Due to a generous matching donor, JCOGS community members have donated $2,814 so far to the Warm Toes Fund, and JCOGS has already begun dispersing funds to organizations who regularly identify people in need. This fund will be evergreen, continuing to take donations and provide for our community. JCOGS invites the larger community to donate to the Warm Toes Fund by clicking here

Service providers in the area with clients in need should contact the front office: jcogs@jcogs.org or 802-253-1800. JCOGS will be glad to help out.

JCOGS especially wants to thank Bombas for their commitment to donate a pair of socks for every pair purchased. Our community has benefited from this generous program, and there will be a lot more warm toes this year because of it.
