Programs that Promote the Power of Undies

Helping little humans back to their day with dignity, Dory®, Star Wars® and stripes!

Our four programs make sure no student’s potential, comfort, or confidence is compromised by a lack of clean underwear—and we always like to make sure those undies are fun and fitting for their wearers! In addition to being clean undie conduits for school nurses and nonprofits, part of our mission is to provide communities with a consistent forum for philanthropy, to start the happy habit of helping early.

School Nurse Distribution

The Spare Pair

Request Undies

The power of undies to get kids back to class.

We provide elementary and middle school nurses with 150 pair each throughout the school year that they can stash for student accidents and emergencies. Having a spare pair on the ready gets little learners back into the classroom as quickly as possible, and makes them less of a target for teasing or bullying.

WHEN: Nurses receive underwear when a new school year begins.

Nonprofit & Event Distribution

The Week’s Share

Request Undies

The power of undies to get kids back to school.

We provide local partners with boxfuls of 5-pair bags (enough for a Monday through Friday) that they then distribute to kids and teens at family events. Every child receives a week’s worth of clean underwear, so they can head to school each day fresh and focused.

WHEN: Social service organizations and events receive underwear when a new school year begins.

Disaster Relief Distribution

Disaster Care

Donate

The power of undies to get families back on their feet.

When hurricanes, floods, fires, or other natural disasters strike, we provide partner organizations with underwear to distribute to children and families in dire need of aid. Clean underwear is an easily-overlooked essential that can offer immediate physical and emotional relief.

WHEN: A blue alert bar will appear at the top of our website when we are actively distributing undies or collecting donations for disaster relief efforts.

Undies Academy

I'm Interested

The power of undies to get us involved in our community.

Central to our mission of giving kids undies is giving communities a local and lifelong opportunity to make philanthropy a part of their lives. We can bring our Mobile Undies Unit to schools, where students donate a pair of underwear, pack undies into bags of five, and learn about meaningful ways we can give back to others, beginning with this basic but universal need for undies. Send us a request to let us know you’re interested!

WHEN: You tell us! We’ll do our best to work out a time and place.

While we’re eager to help everyone, we’ve learned we’re more effective when we focus on just a few groups in need.
  • Elementary and middle school nurses in districts where more than 50% of the students live below the poverty line
  • Nonprofit organizations that serve kids preschool through middle school
  • Social service organizations that exclusively serve disadvantaged students, with a focus on education
  • Programs that serve kids in the Child Protective Services (CPS) system
  • Kids in residential programs
  • Women’s shelters
  • Crisis intervention centers
  • Organizations without a 501c3 designation
  • Individuals, for any purpose
  • Adults (except during disaster relief efforts)
  • Homeless centers/shelters
  • Churches or religious organizations
  • Private schools
  • High schools
