As the lead sponsor of BHCHP's annual Sox for Socks campaign, the Boston Red Sox invite us to Fenway Park for a weekend collection drive each year and encourage fans to bring new white cotton socks to support our patients. With help from the Red Sox, countless people throughout New England now know that access to shoes and socks is often limited for men and women who are homeless and living in shelters and on the streets.
Rain-soaked feet, ill-fitting shoes, constant standing and diseases like diabetes take their toll on the feet of homeless people. Every day, BHCHP's nurses and physicians treat a huge range of foot ailments - from trench foot to skin infections, from frostbite to nail diseases. The best way to prevent such conditions is to keep feet clean and dry - very difficult if you spend your days outside.
Our 13th Annual Sox for Socks weekend will take place at Fenway Park Friday, June 22nd - Sunday, June 24th, 2018. If you plan to attend a game that weekend, please consider bringing new, white socks to any gate at Fenway Park. Look for the Sox for Socks volunteers just inside the gate!
