Volunteers and Sock Drive Coordinators

We use the demographic information to populate our volunteer database and to contact you in connection with volunteer and Sock Drive activities.

To keep our volunteers and Sock Drive coordinators up-to-date, Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program sends occasional e-mail messages about activities and events. If you receive electronic communications from BHCHP and decide at any time that you no longer wish to hear from us, you may reply to the message with a request that you be removed from our list. We will attend to all such requests promptly.
