Join and Help with the Warm Hearts, Warm Feet Sock Drive


2020 Warm Hearts Warm Feet sock drive

The third annual “Warm Hearts for Warm Feet Wool Sock Drive” will be held February 3-14, 2020.  The Office of Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui, the Cambridge City Council, and the Cambridge Police Department are conducting the drive in collaboration with CASPAR & Bay Cove Human Services to aid those in our community who are experiencing homelessness this winter. 

Residents can drop off new pairs of wool socks to Cambridge City Hall (795 Mass. Ave.) or Cambridge Police Headquarters (125 Sixth St.)

A single pair of wool socks can be crucially important to a homeless neighbor living outdoors during the frigid winter months. Each pair of socks that a member of CASPAR's Street Outreach Team hands out can also be a lifeline—that initial connection with the staff that can lead a person into our shelter, where they can gain access to additional services and care, and hopefully get started on the path to safe and permanent housing.

The drive started in 2018 when then Councillors Alanna Mallon and Sumbul Siddiqui visited the CASPAR/Bay Cove Shelter at 240 Albany Street and realized the critical need for wool socks.

Wool socks will be distributed to our homeless neighbors as they are donated. We thank you for your consideration of this worthy effort.
