Local nonprofit partners with Houston Texans YMCA to combat poverty

Princess Jackson’s Sock Out Poverty, Inc. organization partnered with the Houston Texans YMCA to donate new pairs of socks to the community they serve.

“We are excited to partner with Princess Jackson’s organization Sock Out Poverty,” stated Houston Texans YMCA Director John Williams! “It’s great when young people want to give back to the community. Partnering with a nonprofit that lines up with our core values to benefit the community is always a great thing!”

For the past four years, Princess Jackson has made it her mission to donate this simple but essential article of clothing so many take for granted. To date, Jackson has donated over 10,000 pairs of socks since the inception of Sock Out Poverty, Inc., a 501c3 that provides socks, clothing and other material goods to men, women, boys, and girls who are in need or less fortunate.

“My goal is for everyone to have a pair of socks who needs them,” states Sock Out Poverty Founder Princess Jackson. “I am looking forward to partnering with the Houston Texans YMCA and donating socks to the communities they serve is going to be fun and continues to get one step closer to passing out socks all over the world!”

About Sock Out Poverty

The “Sock Out Poverty” campaign was birthed by child actress Princess Jackson who after volunteering at a blanket drive notice that people receiving blankets didn’t have a simple pair of socks! The then nine-year-old could not understand why they didn’t have socks to keep their feet warm and wanted to do something about it. Soon after Sock Out Poverty was created and has donated over 10,000 pairs of socks in Houston, Beaumont, San Antonio and Dallas!

The organization hopes to bring awareness to the public on how significant a pair of socks can be to a homeless person. For more information on Sock Out Poverty visit www.sockoutpoverty.org
