Help us bring comfort
and confidence to kids across the U.S.

In a world where too few families can afford fresh undies, we’re on a mission to make a big deal out of small pairs. By working to ensure that all children have access to the daily dignity of clean underwear, you help promote the conditions for success every kid deserves—from basic hygiene and better school attendance to brighter outlooks about themselves and the world around them. Thank you.

host a virtual undies drive

Start your own Undies drive - virtually!

Host a virtual undies drive by inviting your group’s members, friends and family from all over to click a button and send some undies for a child in need.

To help you promote your drive, we’ll equip you with UFE-branded templates and ideas for social posts to spread the digital word far and wide. Virtual drives are great for birthday parties, bar/bat Mitzvah projects, corporate team building . . . what can you celebrate with undies?

host a local undies drive

Ready to make a difference in the life of a child?

Everyone can drop their drawers with an undies drive at your organization or place of business. We provide a wish list, flyers and more to make your drive a giant undies success! Challenge groups or departments—who can bring in the most undies to help kids in need.

Share your time to pack Undies!

If you live in the Houston area, sign up to visit Undies World Headquarters and pack some undies. All volunteer opportunities currently happen in Houston, but feel free to plan your next vacation around a tour of where the undies magic happens!

What to expect:

  • We’ll have snacks and drinks on hand, as well as our friendly office pups—please let us know if you have an allergy.
  • We welcome volunteers of all ages, but ask that children under 10 are supervised at all times.
  • Our facility is full of large boxes, so we recommend that volunteers wear closed-toe shoes.
  • Our doors open 10 minutes before the packing time.
  • You will be packing bags of underwear that will be distributed to kids throughout Texas. Watch the video about how to pack the underwear.
Where to find us:
3610 Willowbend Blvd. #1000
Houston, Texas 77054
We are located near the corner of 90 (Main) and Willowbend.
“Every contribution helps me serve these children in moments of need, helping them feel clean and comfortable, ready to learn, and good about themselves.”
–Laura Williams, Nurse

Group Volunteers

Group volunteering is for parties of 15 or more. If your group has fewer than 15, we’d be delighted to have you sign up for individual volunteer slots.

Undies for Entry: 10 pairs per person

We ask that volunteer groups donate 10 pairs of new underwear per participant. Your group can do this a few ways:

OPTIONS: Day-of-the-Packing

  • Ask each participant to bring 10 pair of new, in-package girl’s or boy’s underwear to the packing. (See below for size recommendations.)
  • Make a monetary donation at our Undies HQ using our credit card Dip Jar. (It’s easy. Promise.)

Options: Before-the-Packing

  • Host an Undies Drive before the packing. (Don’t worry, we’ll walk you through it.)
  • Purchase undies online from our UFE Amazon Wishlist. (They may not end up being the same pair you pack, but they’ll all head somewhere worthy!).
  • Make a monetary donation online.

We distribute all sizes of children’s underwear, but at this time we are in greatest need of larger sizes (girl’s sizes 10–16, boy’s sizes M–XL). Thank you!
