Thank you to the Red Sox and for all those who contributed to this year's Sox for Socks Drive! We collected 7,153 pairs of socks and received just over $3,000 in donations! Thank you!
Announcing Sox for Socks weekend at Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox!
As the lead sponsor of BHCHP's annual Sox for Socks campaign, the Boston Red Sox invited 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 14th Annual Sox for Socks weekend took place at Fenway Park on:
Friday, August 9 - Sunday, August 11, 2019
Thanks to the Red Sox Foundation, NESN, Gentle Giant, and all of Red Sox Nation for your support!
