Sock Donation Programs


Sock Donation Programs

Purpose of the Programs

Customer Sock Donation Program

     The purpose of the Customer Sock Donation Program by SammySocks Etc. is to provide a way for customers to purchase socks from SammySocks Etc. and have them donated to the Hope Alliance of Round Rock, Texas. The Hope Alliance of Round Rock, Texas is a resource center and emergency shelter for those affected by family and sexual violence.

     This customer sock donation program allows customers an opportunity to purchase designated socks at the wholesale cost to us and then have us donate them to the Hope Alliance. We charge Texas sales tax on these items. We also charge any out of state sales tax, if applicable, on these items.  We do not send the donation socks to the customer. We give them directly to the Hope Alliance. The socks designated for this customer sock donation program are:

Men’s Classic Casual Assorted Patterns Crew Socks – Cost of the pair of socks for the Customer = $1.00

Women’s Music Crew Socks – Cost of the pair of socks for the Customer = $1.00

     For example, a customer wants to purchase and then donate five pairs of socks that we offer through this program to the Hope Alliance. Each pair of socks has a wholesale price of $1.00. The customer puts five pairs of this sock into their shopping cart. If this is the entire order, we do not charge shipping. The total price charged to the customer would be $1.00 per pair of socks x 5 pairs of socks = $5.00 + Texas sales tax of $0.42 ($5.00 x 8.25%) = $5.42.

     If a customer would like to include socks from this donation program with their regular order of socks for themselves or someone else, then there would be shipping charged on the regular order of socks but not the donated socks. For example, a customer wants to purchase and then donate five pairs of socks that we offer through this program to the Hope Alliance and purchase two pairs of socks for themselves. Each pair of the donated socks has a wholesale price of $1.00. Each pair of the customer’s socks has a retail price on our website of $12.99. The customer puts five pairs of the donated socks into their shopping cart and two pairs of socks for themselves into their cart. The price charged to the customer for the donated socks would be $1.00 per pair x 5 pairs of socks = $5.00 + Texas sales tax of $0.42 ($5.00 x 8.25%) = $5.42. The price charged to the customer for their own socks would be $12.99 per pair x 2 pairs of socks including $4.99 for shipping = $30.97 + Texas sales tax of $2.56 ($30.97 x 8.25%) = $33.53. Together, the price for the entire order (donated socks and customer socks) is $38.95.
