Emmaus Hull and East Riding
In a similar way to other Emmaus operations around the UK, Emmaus Hull and East Riding sells quality second-hand furniture, electrical items, bric-a-brac, books and clothes at affordable prices to raise money to support formerly homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.
Socks In A Box is able to help with the supply of fresh new socks to those which Emmaus supports. Underwear is one of the few clothing items which (for hygiene reasons) cannot be secondhand, so organisations like Emmaus need a constant supply to help meet demand.
For many who have experienced homelessness, one of the biggest obstacles they must overcome is a loss of self esteem. Emmaus provides people with a stable home and the opportunity to regain their self-worth, making a real contribution to their community.
Socks In A Box is proud to be able to support Emmaus Hull and East Riding with a donation of socks through our #socksforgood initiative. For every order we receive while Emmaus Hull and East Riding is our charity partner we will donate a pair of new socks.
