Nest Community Shelter Receives Bombas Socks Donation, Pays it Forward to Support Local Michigan City Children In Need

Nest Community Shelter, a non-profit organization providing emergency housing and support services, has received a generous donation of 5,000 high-performance socks from Bombas known for their signature performance socks made from moisture-wicking and antimicrobial materials. The donated socks are being used to provide dignity and comfort to the shelter’s guests, with the excess supply of 3,750 pairs of socks being shared with the Michigan City Area Schools to support children and families in need throughout the local community.

“We are incredibly grateful to Bombas for their thoughtful donation,” said Harrison Holtkamp, Executive Director of the Nest Community Shelter. “Access to high-quality socks is something many of us take for granted, but it can make a world of difference for someone experiencing homelessness or poverty. These socks will help our guests stay comfortable, healthy, and focused on getting back on their feet.”

Bombas provides premium socks while donating to homeless communities and matches every sock purchased with donations to shelters across the country. This is the second year this donation has been given to Nest Community Shelter. Last year, they received 3,000 pairs of socks, and Nest donated what they did not use to La Porte County agencies that could use this donation.
