10th Annual Sox for Socks weekend at Fenway Park
Friday, May 22nd - Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Want to get involved before Sox for Socks weekend?

BHCHP continues to invite businesses, faith groups, schools, colleges, and individuals to participate in Sox for Socks by coordinating your own sock drive. Join over 100 groups, including our largest sock drive supporter, the Boston Red Sox, in this seasonal drive to collect new socks for men and women living in shelters and on the streets. Sox for Socks is a simple, fun way to make a difference. No sizes to worry about. No colors to choose between. Just new white socks.

Why Socks?
Access to shoes and socks is often limited for the homeless men and women 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.

Clean, white socks are a staple of homeless health care. Your support can help make a real difference in the lives of our patients and the quality of care that we can provide.

How to Join Our Cause

Join the momentum of our sock drive during the Red Sox season or organize a drive anytime during 2015 - we need socks year round! Register your drive today!

  • Download Sock Drive materials or request them by mail, including the Welcome & Suggestions letter—this has a lot of great ideas for making your drive a success!
