About

The cold weather is here again and our community's homeless women and men are especially at risk to the elements. You can help reduce the danger to those on the streets this winter through our Warm Hands Warm Hearts Winter Apparel Drive.

By participating in Warm Hands Warm Hearts you will not only help keep our community's neediest, most vulnerable citizens warm and safe this winter, but you will also help maintain their dignity and comfort during this most difficult time of year.

To participate, all you need to 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.

To get started, just download this flyer and share with those you'd like to participate: http://ow.ly/Tlfzc or visit fobh.org

Friends of Boston's Homeless supports Boston's Woods Mullen Women's Shelter and the Southampton Men's Shelter (formerly Long Island Shelter). These shelters serve over 700 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 as well as clothing and toiletries to each and every individual in need.
