Small changes
big opportunities

Underwear is only one small part of supporting children who struggle with the many consequences of poverty. 7 pairs of new underwear can increase regular school attendance and boost self-esteem for the neediest among us.

boys and girls clubs

Boys and Girls Clubs of America provides after school programming for children who need structure
and support. UFE partners with this vibrant, well-respected group in distributing a week’s supply of
underwear to their participants.


School Homeless Department

Milwaukee’s public school district supports students enrolled in the federally mandated homeless department. Most of the students are “couch surfing”, many fewer students live in shelters with their families. The department makes sure these children attend their home schools, assuring continuity in their education. The department also provides basic needs, including UFE underwear.
