Why we’ll never
get over undies

We believe undies should only ever be a barrier when they’re between you and your clothes. They should never be a barrier to cleanliness, to confidence, or to time spent in class. For too many in our midst, this is still not the reality.

Tens of thousands of kids don’t have access to clean underwear. Many children whose families struggle to make ends meet come to school with hand-me-downs or nothing at all, because they don’t have enough pair to get them through the week. Others have an accident, and have to hope that their school nurse buys backup pairs so they can change and return to class quickly.

Both scenarios can be humiliating—and even scary for students who are frightened a teacher or classmate can smell or tell what they’re missing. Learn how our very own Captain Underpants, founder Rabbi Amy Weiss, has been working to bring undies to everyone since 2012.

By working to ensure that all children have access to the daily dignity of clean underwear, we promote the conditions for success every student deserves—from basic hygiene and better attendance to brighter outlooks about themselves and the world around them. Undies are often easy to overlook, but we believe these little layers can lead to greatness.

Who knows—whether through the simple act of giving or receiving new undies—one pair, somewhere, may be just the change a person needs.

In 2019, UFE’s distribution programs will serve 300,000 students across Texas with over 400,000 pair of underwear. We couldn’t do it without you!
