One Boston Day Sock Drive

Onebostonday Header


In honor of One Boston Day, Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zoo in partnership with Hilton is hosting a sock drive to benefit Bay Cove Human Services.

Zoo guests are encouraged to donate a new pair of socks, which will go to the homelessness service programs of Boston non-profit Bay Cove Human Services--including The Cardinal Medeiros Center, a day program based in Roxbury for older adults who are currently homeless. A clean, dry pair of socks is hardly a luxury for most of us, but it’s something that can have a huge impact on the comfort, health and safety of men and women in our community who are facing the challenges of being homeless.

On April 14 and 15, donations of new socks can be dropped off in the designated boxes near the admission booths at both of Franklin Park Zoo’s entrances, as well as at Hilton Logan Airport and Hilton Downtown Faneuil Hall.
