Red Sox Foundation partners with Globe Santa to bring warm clothing to children this holiday season

For the second straight year, the Red Sox Foundation has partnered with Globe Santa to collect warm winter clothing for children in need this holiday season. Starting Monday, December 5, and through December 16, fans are encouraged to donate new hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens for children 12 and under at Fenway Park.

Globe Santa is a program of the Boston Globe Foundation that delivers books, toys and other holiday gifts to children across the Commonwealth who would otherwise go without. The program serves an average of over 50,000 children each holiday season.

Items for donation may be placed in a collection bin located at Fenway Park's Gate D entrance near the corner of Yawkey Way and Van Ness Street. Additional collection bins will be available throughout the ballpark on December 10 during the club's annual Christmas at Fenway event.

Fans unable to drop items off in person may mail them to the attention of the Red Sox Foundation's Globe Santa Collection at 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA, 02215.

All items must be new and in sizes appropriate for children 12 and under.
