Boys and Girls Clubs of America provides after school programming for children who need structure

underwear to their participants.
Child Protective Services (CPS) located in Austin is a branch of Texas’ social services department responsible for cases of child abuse and neglect. Children found to live in dangerous situations are removed at a moment’s notice and often leave without any belongings. An assigned social worker takes each child “shopping” in a room stocked with basic needs where they receive UFE underwear.
