2019 Year in Review

2019 Year in Review

by Keeton Yescott December 19, 2019 1 Comment

2019 has been a year to remember. Take a look at some of our top moments!


LOTS OF NEW SOCKS

We do our best to introduce new socks fairly often throughout the year, but these were some of our best new sellers in 2019. (Some of them even sold completely out!)

Acadia Vintage Winter Wool Socks

Polka Dot Ankle Socks

Buck's Bamboo Socks

No Show Socks


FUN COLLABORATIONS

In May while we were partnered with Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, Steve Cishek from the Cubs joined us and it was amazing working with him. See a video here.

In November, two Indianapolis Colts players and the IU Mens Basketball Strength & Conditioning coach joined us for our hand out at Wheeler Mission. See a recap here.


MOVING INTO THE SKY SHOP

In August, we moved into our first space (instead of running the business out of a storage unit.) It's been a huge blessing, especially during the holiday season, to have a place to move the madness in and out!


EXPANSION INTO SKY OUTFITTERS

Perhaps the biggest moment of 2019 was when we expanded from Sky Footwear to Sky Outfitters. With that, we also hired a second full time employee, as well as a part time employee!

We are so grateful for everyone's support in regard to this decision! Read more about the "why" here.


SKY IN THE NEWS

This year was an incredible year for Sky in the news! We had several stories throughout the year that local stations did about our partnerships.

RECORD NUMBERS

Aside from all of the other exciting moments in 2019, the best feeling is knowing that we hit record numbers - which means donating record amounts of socks, hats, and scarves - which means more & more people being impacted by our mission.

We are closing out this year with extremely thankful hearts. Thankful for this company and the growth. Thankful for our team for working hard and propelling everything forward against all odds. And mostly, thankful for you all. We have no idea what 2020 will bring, and that is one of the scariest and most exciting parts about this journey!

We planned our entire Christmas giving around your message of socks being the most needed item of the homeless. We ordered as many socks as we could through Sky Outfitters and needed to purchase socks for the little grand and great grand children elsewhere. But 27 family members got socks for Christmas with your message about socks for the homeless.
