Seven years ago when we established High Socks For Hope, we thought we would just help Tuscaloosa. We never dreamed that with the help of our supporters, we would end up giving hundreds of natural disaster survivors and homeless veterans a foundation for a new start with a furnished home.
Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
