The nurses from the Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Program organized a Sock Drive for Friends of Boston’s Homeless. CDI nurses collected more than 700 pairs of new socks, which were donated to the shelter on Dec. 16. The shelter distributes more than 8,000 pairs of socks annually.

Donation boxes were located on Shapiro 9 on 10 and near the Shapiro 2 information desk from Nov. 19 to Dec. 16. The team was inspired by the great response by all the BWH employees who donated, with special thanks to the Shapiro 9 and 10 staff who alone collected over 180 pairs.

Thanks to everyone who participated! We are already planning ways to make our sock drive bigger and better next year.
