Over the past decade, we have been working with homeless shelters, organizations, community groups and individuals from across the country to help create an awareness for those who are homeless or in transitional housing that are often over looked – the invisible people in our communities. Since 2009, we have also been partnering with Mark Horvath whose nonprofit, Invisible People, is dedicated to educating the public about homelessness.
11 Years Dedicated to Donating Socks
Socks and underwear are among the most requested, but least donated items at homeless shelters. Our goal over the past decade has been to bring some comfort to those in need by simply providing a clean pair of socks through the hands of our committed partners. This year we’re donating more than 250,000 pairs to our partner shelters and organizations.
Hanes is proud to donate 1 million face masks to nonprofit organizations supporting the homeless across the country
We leveraged existing nonprofit relationships built through the Hanes Sock Drive, and worked with long-standing partner Mark Horvath, founder of Invisible People – a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about homelessness – to identify local homeless support partner organizations across all 50 states (as well as Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.).
Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than 3 million pairs of socks to our partners in all 50 states, and this year, we’ve donated 1 million face masks. Our partners have helped distribute these donations to those in need in communities like yours. You can use the map to discover more about the organizations we’ve partnered with near you.

Join us in helping support the homeless this holiday season.
You can find our partner homeless support organizations on the map above (or just reach out to your local homeless shelter). As temperatures go down, cold-weather gear is a critical need – but each organization has its own wish list. We urge you to get involved and help bring a little comfort to those who need it most.
