ORGANIZATION: Friends of Boston's Homeless

Operation Sock Drop

This is a great Virtual / Off Site Opportunity too. Fresh, clean socks (and underwear!) are vital for people's health, warmth, comfort, and dignity and they are least donated item to people in greatest need.

By participating in Operation Sock Drop you not only help keep our community's most vulnerable neighbors safe and healthy, but you will also help maintain their dignity and comfort during this most difficult time in their lives. The shelters we support give out over 8,000 pairs/year so we are always in great need!

You can organize a drive with your co-workers, classmates, colleagues or even with friends, family and neighbors. It's an easy and inexpensive way to make a big impact on the comfort, health, safety and dignity of our community's homeless.

To get started, just download this flyer and share with everyone you'd like to participate: https://fobh.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/Sock-Drop-Flyer-2023.pdf

You can drop off 24/7 at the Woods Mullen Women's Shelter, 794 Albany Street, right in the South End. You can also box them up and mail them, or place orders online, and have them sent to Attn: Dwayne Brown, Southampton Shelter, 112 Southampton Street, Boston, MA 02118.

Keep our community housing programs residents healthy, we continue working remotely and there is no place to leave packages if we aren't there. Thank you!

Friends of Boston's Homeless supports Boston's Woods Mullen Women's Shelter and Southampton Men's Shelter (formerly Long Island Shelter). These shelters serve over 800 of our vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness 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 as well as clothing and toiletries to each and every person in need.

About Friends of Boston's Homeless


12 Wise Street, Boston, MA 02130, US

Mission Statement

Founded in 1987, Friends of Boston’s Homeless supports innovative, solutions-oriented programs with proven track records that help people move from the streets and shelters into safe, dignified housing and live peaceful, hopeful, fulfilling lives in our community. We focus on removing the final barriers of transition that often city and state programs, and the people they help, don’t have the means to cover. The final transition steps out of homelessness are often the most crucial, and we make them happen.


Like a Parent/Teachers Organization or a "Friends of the Public Library" group, Friends bridges the gap between public sector funding and the current needs of the homeless by providing a vehicle for individuals, businesses, foundations and charitable organizations to be a part of the solution to homelessness.

Please join us in our mission! Friends of Boston’s Homeless provides direct and impactful ways individuals, corporations, foundations, groups, and charitable organizations can be an important part of ending homelessness in Boston.
