The Boston Home Residents and Staff Collect Six Hundred Pairs of New White Socks for Bay Cove Homeless Shelter.

The Boston Home Residents and Staff Collect Six Hundred Pairs of New White Socks for  Bay Cove Homeless Shelter.

The Boston Home resident and former social worker Margaret Marie wanted to do something for others this holiday season. She did not have too far to look for a project. Margaret asked her wife Nancy Mahan, Senior Vice President of program services at Bay Cove Human Services, what she could do to help.  Nancy’s answer was surprisingly simple: new white socks. “New white socks are the number one requested item at homeless shelters, yet among the least often donated. Mahan continued, “We are grateful to The Boston Home. The homeless population is constantly at risk of serious foot disease during winter months.” The Boston Home Chief Executive Officer, Christine Reilly, said “The Boston Home residents, staff, and families are wonderful! Everyone rallied and we collected over six-hundred pairs of new white socks.”  We were happy to host the sock drive for Bay Cove Human Services and we plan on making it an annual tradition.”
