Red Sox wives hosting book drive

The Red Sox Wives will host a children’s book drive at Fenway Park on Friday before the 7:10 p.m. game against Toronto. The book collection will benefit Room to Grow, the non-profit organization which seeks to enrich the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development.

Fans are asked to bring children’s books appropriate for kids 0-3 years old. The organization has a special need for board books in both Spanish and English.

There will be a table located outside of each Fenway Park gate from the time gates open at 5:40 p.m. through the 2nd inning of the game.
