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 invite 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.
This year's drive at Fenway was scheduled for June 26th - 28th but has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Without the help of Red Sox Nation, we will have a greater need for socks this year. We are asking for your help to kick off our first-ever virtual, socially-distanced sock drive!
