FAQ

General

Undies for Everyone is committed to the self-esteem, dignity, and success of disadvantaged students in North America by providing them new underwear.

Undies for Everyone will also provide underwear to people in the United States affected by natural disasters, responding with speed and efficiency as allowed by each situation.

Undies is growing! Currently, Undies for Everyone distributes underwear in the state of Texas. However, our plan is to distribute underwear to 10 cities outside Texas in 10 years. To request undies, fill out a request for either nurses or nonprofits. Once we have expanded to your city, we will give you a call and let you know when you can expect Undies!

Yes. Undies for Everyone serves elementary and middle school students by distributing through our School Nurse and School Support programs. UFE also partners with large non-profit organizations to support students in need.

Undies for Everyone purchases 85% of the underwear from four major underwear companies.  The remaining 15% is donated through gift-in-kind donations from generous individual donors and corporate partners.

Yes! The more underwear given to UFE by generous donors, the more students can be helped in a given year. You can host a drive, purchase underwear on our Amazon Wishlist or collect undies in lieu of gifts for a special birthday or celebration. Thank you in advance!

Nurses

Check this list to see if your school district is currently being served by Undies for Everyone.

Fill out the Undies for Everyone request form and we will be in touch!

Nothing! If you see your school on this list your box is being packed and we will deliver it to the head nurse of your school district during late summer. The head nurse will inform you about where to find your box or when it will be delivered to your school.

There are 150 pairs of underwear in the box for school nurses. There are boxes specifically assembled for elementary schools, middle schools, junior high schools and K-8 schools.  Undies also makes sure to provide single sex boxes to girls’ and boys’ schools.

Undies for Everyone also provides underwear to student support staff and to the Homeless Departments in each district. If you know about a child in need and do not have enough underwear please reach out to those departments in your school.

Unfortunately, the boxes of underwear are standard. Undies has done research to ensure that you will have the best mix of sizes for the grade levels (and size) of your school. We are unable to provide more than 150 pairs per year to any one school. The sizes that Undies for Everyone carries are girls’ sizes 4-16 and boys’ sizes XS-XL.

Please distribute all underwear each year, you will get a new box again next year! You can give them to a school counselor to distribute to kids in need in the school or you can reach out to individual students who you know might need that underwear over the summer.

Please email info@undiesforeveryone.org to provide feedback about the school nurse program.
