Briefs are nothing exceptional to the law community. However, to the homeless community, they are. Having access to this simple daily essential is as much about dignity as it is hygiene. Every donation will help deliver comfort to one of the over 11,000 patients that BHCHP serves at more than 60 locations throughout Greater Boston.
Many people who donate goods to organizations that support homeless people prioritize items such as winter coats, first-aid kits, or food supplies. While these are all important, underwear is a crucial part of everyday clothing that is greatly needed and often overlooked. New underwear gives the gift of confidence as these men and women strive to overcome other challenges in their lives.
The local legal community has a tradition of supporting the homeless population in Boston. Many attorneys and firms already donate their time and talents to pro bono causes that support our most vulnerable citizens. The Lawyers, Bring Us Your Briefs Drive was created as a way to link this sector to the patients we serve.
