Undies Sundays

Our 2018 Undies Sundays drive was a success! We collected 13,247 items!

A huge THANK YOU to the area churches, businesses, and child care centers that participated in the drive, as well as to everyone in the community who donated items.

Items were distributed to social workers at a dozen United Way partner agencies including Northeast Human Service Center, CVIC, Northlands Rescue Mission, The Village Family Service, Center, St. Joseph's Social Care, and Salvation Army, among others.
 

'Undies Sundays' Fact Sheet

  MISSION:  The Community donates NEW underwear, socks, diapers, and personal care items. Items are distributed to families in the community who are in need.
The program was started in 2003.
Yearly over 20,000 items are donated.
The donations have a huge impact on the kids and adults that receive them.
Churches have always been the primary collection points, hence the name "Undies Sundays".
Undies Sundays runs the first three Sundays in October.
The clothing items will be distributed to the agencies that operate shelters, CVIC, Salvation Army and St. Joseph's Social Care & Thrift Store.
Diapers and personal care items will also go to area food shelves because food stamps cannot purchase diapers or non-food items.
