ISHLT2023 Sock Drive

As part of the Society's 2023 endeavor to incorporate new social responsibility efforts during the Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions to increase the positive impact on the host city, ISHLT will be hosting a Sock Drive at ISHLT2023 to support the Denver Rescue Mission and its commitment to helping those experiencing homelessness.

Did you know that socks are the most needed and least donated clothing item for those in need? With the small gift of a new pair of socks, you will not only help ISHLT achieve its goal of making a positive impact on the Annual Meeting host city, but also assist those most vulnerable in the Denver community.

As you're preparing for your trip to Denver for ISHLT2023, add a few new pairs of socks to your packing list and truly help someone in need! Donations will be collected at the registration desk. 

The Denver Rescue Mission has been serving the Denver community for over 130 years. The organization helps restore the lives of people experiencing homelessness and addiction through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, and community outreach.
