Copper Sole, Socks for Heroes Partner to Help Soldiers in Afghanistan
Mount Airy, NC (October 3, 2012) -- Of all the basics that U.S. troops on the battlefield need the most, clean socks are high on the list, says a leading military support group.
“Clean socks are as important as food and ammunition to an infantryman,” said Jim Hogan, who with his wife Carla started the Socks for Heroes program in 2011 to help provide a much-needed item to Marines stationed in Afghanistan. Through donations from such companies as Renfro Corporation, they have shipped 128,000 pairs of socks to Marines and Soldiers in Afghanistan.
To help the Hogans serve more soldiers with new socks, Renfro Corporation, a global leader in the legwear industry, is launching a pre-holiday offer to benefit the military.
For every pair of Copper Sole socks that is purchased through its website www.CopperSole.com between now and November 18, 2012, Renfro will donate a pair of Copper Sole socks to the Socks for Heroes program.
The Copper Sole brand was chosen because it provides many benefits that an infantryman appreciates. Copper ions are woven into the fabric of the sock, helping to eliminate odor-causing bacteria. The socks have a reinforced cushioned sole and smooth toe seam that provide exceptional comfort against tough boots. They wick moisture away from the skin to keep the feet drier. Copper is a mineral found naturally in the body. The copper ions help the body feel energized and can repair damaged skin.
