Sox for Socks

 

Sox for Socks is back at Fenway Park!

For people experiencing homelessness, the need for new socks is critical. Spending hours on their feet, with walking as their primary mode of transportation, and exposed to the extremes of weather, too often the people served by BHCHP face severe infections and avoidable health complications. Every day, BHCHP relies upon donations of new, white socks to distribute to patients at our more than 35 shelter-based clinics and through the outreach care of our Street Team, providing patients not only with a basic essential to protect their health, but the gift of comfort and dignity. As the lead sponsor of BHCHP's annual Sox for Socks campaign, the Boston Red Sox host us at Fenway Park for a weekend collection drive each year and encourage fans to bring new white cotton socks to support our patients. Through our Sox for Socks events at Fenway over the last 15 years, we have collected over 128,000 pairs of socks.

The Red Sox Foundation and NESN will team up with Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program again this year to collect new white athletic socks from fans attending the Red Sox vs. Milwaukee Brewers at Fenway Park from July 29 - 31, 2022. If you are attending the games that weekend, please consider bringing socks with you!  Our volunteers will be ready to greet you and collect your socks at tables just inside each of the gates.
