Texas Socks to Support Feeding Texas
John’s Crazy Socks has a mission to spread happiness and we want to bring some cheer to Texas. We have created a Texas Strong Gift Pack with five Texas-themed socks, and we will donate $5 from the sale of every box to Feeding Texas, the statewide network of food banks.
“I have friends in Texas, and it made me sad and worried when I saw what happened during their winter storms. We wanted to help,” said John Cronin, co-founder and namesake for John’s Crazy Socks.
John’s co-founder and father, Mark X. Cronin, added, “We wanted to do something and since we are in the sock business, we can offer socks. We created our Texas Strong Gift Pack, a package of five fun and colorful socks that celebrate the resilience of Texans. And we are donating $5 from every package sold to Feeding Texas.”
Feeding Texas is the statewide network of foodbanks and the food banks have been particularly hard hit by the winter crisis. The Feeding Texas network is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas. Together with 21 member food banks, they reach over 5 million Texans annually with food and resources.
Dawn Starostka, Chief Development Officer at Feeding Texas, was excited to hear of the support from John’s Crazy Socks. Ms. Starostka said, “Thank you so much for this great campaign and such a fun product! I love your business model and your mission to spread happiness.”
The Texas Strong Gift Pack comes in a hand wrapped gift bag with five unisex socks that includes the little extra that we put in every package: a thank you note from John and some candy. These Texas socks feature the flag of Texas, the Texas Lone Star and other Texas imagery. These Texas-themed socks are available now at the Johns’ Crazy Socks website.
Buying this gift pack not only supports Feeding Texas, but it enables John’s Crazy Socks to hire people with differing abilities. More than half our employees have a differing ability, including our namesake John, who has Down syndrome.
