BACKGROUND:

February 2013, Massage Envy Spa Glendale pre-launched Massage Envy’s newest service, Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy. To celebrate, Massage Envy Spa Glendale has been hosting the first ever “Sugar Foot Sock Swap,” in partnership with the Glendale Kiwanis. Anyone who donated a pair of socks for the less fortunate, was invited to sample the service, normally a $10 value, with any massage therapy for free. All walk-in sock donors have been welcomed as well.

Throughout the campaign, many people expressed surprise about the need for socks. It was something that most said they hadn’t considered. But for our homeless and less fortunate, it is a very pressing issue. People regularly donate their lightly used clothing, but rarely socks. The “Sugar Foot Sock Swap” has been a successful community outreach campaign. Large boxes of socks were collected, and the window display and local media coverage have helped raise awareness about this very real challenge faced by those who regularly provide service for our less fortunate.
