The Blind Veterans Association Oregon Columbia Regional Group (BVA), in cooperation with Bombas Socks, The Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center, The American Legion Post 30, and The Gresham Lions Supper Club, are acting to assure access to socks for homeless in our community.

Fifty thousand pairs of socks are arriving at 1:00 PM this Wednesday, 9/11. 

Fifty thousand pairs of socks offer an extraordinary chance for video, and with our associates, there is available a variety of spokespersons to call upon for interviews assuring an extensive variation for the media.

In addition to our partners we would like to acknowledge and thank the local community-minded businesses that are our sponsors;

  • The Gresham Animal Hospital and,
