Missoula, Mont. (July 8, 2021) – VIM & VIGR, creator of stylish and comfortable compression socks for all walks of life, is proud to announce that its Buy a Sock, Give a Sock program resulted in over $64,000 worth of compression socks donated to 40 U.S. hospitals and clinics in the first half of 2021. This spring, VIM & VIGR’s program matched every consumer purchase with a corresponding donation to frontline healthcare workers. Over the past two years, VIM & VIGR has donated over $200,000 of compression socks to benefit frontline healthcare workers.
“For more than a year now, nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals have been working around the clock to treat an influx of patients due to COVID. Even as our communities open up, the work doesn’t stop for these brave men and women,” said Michelle Huie, founder of VIM & VIGR. “We are honored to be able to show our appreciation by sending wellness care packages. With long hours on their feet and little time to rest, we hope that our compression socks will energize their legs and offer relief from fatigue.”
Graduated compression socks are an essential item for many nurses and healthcare workers since they are scientifically designed to support legs by decreasing lactic acid, preventing cramps, increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery and minimizing muscle fatigue. In 2021, VIM & VIGR launched its new Rainbow Sock as a symbol of hope in tribute to healthcare professionals along with a video series celebrating nurses.
