NEWBURYPORT — A local podiatry practice has launched a drive to collect clean socks for homeless residents in the greater Boston area.
Dr. James DiResta and Dr. Angela Barnes, in conjunction with the Podiatry Division of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, are participating in a drive to support the Boston Health Care for the Homeless program through the Boston Red Sox.
The program is called Sox for Socks.
Organizers say homeless men and women need clean socks to protect their feet in dirty and/or frigid conditions.
Anna Jaques Hospital has agreed to help the effort, as have the two local doctors.
They ask that a new pair of white socks be dropped off into collection boxes at the Newburyport Podiatry Practice at the Forrester Street Professional Building or at a collection box available at the hospital cafeteria.
