About Warm Hands, Warm Hearts

D36abbdf 7bbc 48ab a432 5c38e297bf5f

We all put on gloves, hats, scarves, a warm pair of socks every winter morning with hardly a thought, but for the homeless these items are often a luxury. By participating in Warm Hands Warm Hearts you will not only help keep our community's neediest, most vulnerable citizens warm and safe during the winter month, but you will also help maintain their dignity and comfort during the most difficult time of year.

To participate, all you need do is donate at least one brand-new (or gently used) winter hat, scarf, pair of gloves, mittens or pair of socks. It's a simple and inexpensive way to make a lasting impact for the homeless women and men in our community.

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 800 of our community's homeless men and women every day (about 70% of those served are men and 30% women). The shelters provide safe dignified care and basic emergency services including, a nutritious meal, hot shower, clean bed and clothing and toiletries to each and every individual in need.
