The sock manufacturer, Bombas, has a corporate mission to give away one pair of socks for each pair sold; that’s near 5,000,000 pairs of socks as of this post!
We applied for a grant to be a recipient of Bombas and were generously shipped 500 pairs of their awesome socks. These will come in handy during our time in Twin Cities homeless shelters this winter.
Its great to see there are companies that utilize as a central focus of vision to give back, as recognition that “to whom much was given, of him much will be required”
Thank you #bombas #beebetter
Stephen cares for his grandson, is on disability and needed temporary help as he was now left alone to care for himself and his grandson. He saw a spot we did on television at Thanksgiving and called to connect with us.
Threshold to New Life provided a one-time grant to assist with his housing situation. A few months later, Stephen replied to our follow up with the below message:
“I am happy to report that my life is truly blessed and I am living well Hallelujah, and that is a large part due to the charity that you and your wife showed me in my time of need …. I truly thank you both.”
We at T2NL are truly grateful and blessed to have the resources (time, talent and finances) to connect with such people as Stephen and his grandson to fulfill such a simple request, and receive the additional blessing of shared gratitude.
Our team at Threshold to New Life has worked hard during the past three years to provide RELIEF to the homeless and begin the process of RESTORATION to the lives we be believe God has in store for them. We have great partners. Several of the shelters and housing agencies in the Twin Cities have worked with us cooperatively to this end. Reducing the struggle and suffering takes a real team effort and a God that won’t quit. We’re grateful to Simpson Housing for our partnership.
How cool is this? Gretchen has been a KEY contact person referring clients to us from Simpson Housing when they need a financial backstop. She has done a great job of vetting situations for us and connecting Threshold to New Life to situations in which we can help the most. Sadly for us, Gretchen moved onto a new position elsewhere and as she was leaving, sent us this card from her and her husband because they believe in and support the work we’re doing.
