Since 2005, the Boston Red Sox have invited BHCHP to Fenway Park for a weekend for our annual Sox for Socks campaign collection drive. Each year, the Boston Red Sox serve as the lead sponsor of the Sox for Socks campaign and encourage fans to bring new white cotton socks to support our patients.
We are thrilled to announce that 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 all five gates!
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.

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.
