One Boston Day Sock Drive

 Onebostonday Header

In honor of One Boston Day, Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zoo 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 Center for Change, a day program based in Dorchester for homeless seniors and older adults. 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 homeless men and women in our community.

On April 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.
