Helen McDonagh and Andrew Garsten, Massage Envy Spa Glendale owners are partnering with the Glendale Kiwanis to get a foothold on the sock shortage faced by homeless shelters in Glendale and throughout Los Angeles. For the entire month of February, McDonagh and Garsten are offering their new signature service, the Sugar Foot Scrub, in exchange for a pair of socks worthy of donation. Simply swap a pair socks for a free Sugar Foot Scrub only at Massage Envy Spa Glendale. 

Glendale, California, February 4, 2013— This February, as Massage Envy launches its new signature add-on service, the Sugar Foot Scrub, Massage Envy Spa Glendale will host the first ever “Sugar Foot Sock Swap.” Anyone who donates a pair of socks for the less fortunate, can add the service, normally a $10 value, onto their massage or facial for free. And yes, walk-in sock donors are welcome.

As the box fills up, the Glendale Kiwanis will come by to collect the socks for distribution among Glendale’s homeless shelters. Most people are unaware of the need for socks, but it is a great one.  People regularly donate their lightly used clothing, but rarely socks.

The socks don’t need to be new, but they should be clean, and only lightly worn, without too much wear and tear. Grab those mateless socks that have been out of circulation and toss those into the sock box, too. It matter far less to those in need that their socks match as it does that they have something warm on their feet.

According to McDonagh, “We want to help fill the community’s need for socks,  and we’re rewarding all of our sock donors with a sugary treat for their tired feet.”

The new Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy combines sugar with essential oils, by [ Company name] to soothe and rejuvenate feet. Schedule service or for questions, call 818.246.ENVY, or stop by and drop your socks at 333 North Brand Boulevard, Glendale, California.
