Renfro Corporation, a leader in the legwear industry, is honored to have the opportunity to support the efforts of Resilience Inc. The partnership between the two organizations resulted from a mutual contact from North Carolina State University connecting Renfro Corporation with Resilience founder Jake Teitelbaum.
Once learning the goals of Resilience, the partnership seemed a natural fit for Renfro given its corporate culture. Resilience distinguishes itself with positive community impact, patient openness, and caring support provided to individuals at their moment of greatest need. Resilience’s caring approach makes Renfro proud to serve as their partner. It is truly rewarding for Renfro, the global leader in sock industry, to see socks have such a positive impact on someone’s life.
Resilience and the Renfro team started with a single design in February of 2017. To bring the patients dream alive, Jake works directly with the patients to help them perfect their own unique design for socks. Then Renfro works with Jake to finalize the design for production. Once ready for production, Renfro knits the socks in the Research and Development lab in Mount Airy, NC turning the dream into a reality. To date, the partnership has generated eight sock designs with an additional three designs in process.
