One Boston Day 2017

Media Advisory One Boston Day John Hancock Sneaker Drive

The third annual One Boston Day is on Saturday, April 15 and you can help make a difference with St. Francis House.

As the City of Boston celebrates One Boston Day, we invite you to mark the day with St. Francis House. One Boston Day is an annual opportunity for businesses, organizations, and individuals to join together in celebrating the generosity of the Boston community.

Building off our successful shoe drive last year, we are partnering again with John Hancock for a sneaker drive to benefit our Fresh Threads department which distributes 3,000 pairs of shoes every year, unable to meet the full demand from those in need.

There will be collection bins strategically placed throughout Boston on One Boston Day, Saturday, April 15, 2017. If you would prefer to participate in a different way, you may make a donation in honor of One Boston Day.

We thank you for your engagement and support in helping St. Francis House provide the resources for our guests to rebuild their lives.
