This year’s One Boston Day drive was a huge success, due in large part to our corporate partners.
A huge thank you goes to John Hancock, who has continued to provide tremendous support to us for both One Boston Day and the Boston Marathon, year over year. You can read more about our partnership with John Hancock here.
With their assistance spreading the word about the citywide sneaker drive, we had a number of partners step up and offer help. Thanks to the following partners who hosted sneaker collection boxes:
- Boston City Hall
- Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel
- Dr. Martens
- Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel
- Marathon Sports Boston
Additional thanks to other partners throughout the city who pitched in with a variety of different drives to support our efforts, including Webster Bank and the Hampshire House.
Sneaker Drive for Fresh Threads Program
All the shoes collected during the One Boston Day drive will benefit guests who come to our Fresh Threads clothing program, which provides free clothing to all in need. Our Fresh Threads program distributes over 3,000 pairs of shoes each year. Thanks to all of our partners who help to make this possible!
