Implus is partnering with Texas-based Academy Sports + Outdoors to donate 60,000 pairs of socks to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the Gulf Coast. The organizations are working with the nationally recognized nonprofit charity Delivering Good to distribute the socks over the coming weeks. The donated goods will help men, women and children impacted by the floods, many of whom were forced to leave their homes without the necessary clothing items.
“We are proud to be able to help the people of Southern Texas and sincerely hope that our donation provides some relief to people that are currently without all of the comforts we often take for granted,” states Todd Vore, president of Implus. “One of our goals at Implus is to help people overcome challenges in sport but at times like these it’s important to remember that some challenges in life are bigger than that. We hope in some small way we are able to help people overcome those challenges too.”
The socks will be shipped from the Implus distribution center in Durham, NC, to Delivering Good’s operations in Texas. Delivering Good will then work with their network of community partners to distribute the items to individuals in the impacted areas.
