When we embarked on our socks journey, one of our many aims was to create a product that would give back to our community.
In the U.S., we partnered with, Philadelphia's People's Emergency Center (PEC), whose mission is to nurture families, strengthen neighborhoods and drive change. For homeless women with children and parenting youth, PEC offers more than 235 affordable housing units, job training, parenting and early childhood education, financial education and planning, life skills and technology coursework. PEC seeks to change the life trajectory for the families who seek its services and inspire them to achieve housing security and financial stability.
In Canada, we partnered up with Brands For Canada, a charity organization which aims to create a world where goods are purposefully used to eliminate poverty and inequality. PHILOSOCKPHY decided to donate part of our profits, in addition to surplus inventory, to Brands For Canada.
When you wear a pair of Philosockphy, you are wearing the love we all have for our community and taking part in giving back.
This is why we are fondly referred to as: PHILOSOCKPHY, the socks with a heart!
