About Operation Sock Drop

D36abbdf 7bbc 48ab a432 5c38e297bf5f

We all put on a clean pair of socks every morning with hardly a thought. But for our community's homeless men and women these items are often a luxury.

By participating in Operation Sock Drop you not only help keep our community's neediest, most vulnerable citizens safe, warm, and healthy, but you will also help maintain their dignity and comfort during this most difficult time in their lives.

You can organize a drive at your work, school, place of worship, community organization, or even with friends, family and neighbors, and it's very easy to run.

To participate, all you and your co-workers, school mates, colleagues or friends need do is donate at least one new pair of men's or women's socks, pair of underwear or undershirt (men's XL and 2XL are always needed). It's an easy and inexpensive way to make a big impact on the comfort, health, safety and dignity of our community's homeless.

Friends of Boston's Homeless supports the Woods Mullen Shelter in Boston's South End and the Long Island Shelter on Boston Harbor. These shelters serve over 850 homeless individuals every day. The shelters provide safe dignified care and basic emergency services including a nutritious meal, hot shower, a warm bed, clothing and toiletries to each and every individual in need.
