Crestron has announced that they have partnered with comfort-focused sock and apparel brand Bombas to spread some holiday cheer in support of our nations’ frontline healthcare workers and pediatric patients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Crestron has donated 4,400 pairs of socks to healthcare providers and their patients at several hospitals near Crestron’s regional offices.
Now, healthcare workers can receive a new, clean pair of socks between shifts and patients can leave the hospital with new socks on their way home to celebrate holidays.
Bombas has matched Crestron’s donation by sending an additional 4,400 pairs of socks to Crestron. Crestron will deliver these donation socks to several charitable organizations selected by them that support the homeless in North America.
The donated socks are “made to meet the needs of the times we are living in; features include an antimicrobial treatment, reinforced seams for durability and darker colors for less visible wear,” according to the announcement.
They “provide comfort for the less-than-ideal environments many homeless people are currently living in,” the Crestron announcement says.
