Underwear is the most under-donated, yet most needed, item of clothing. No one should be deprived of the simple daily necessity of clean underwear that many of us take for granted. For many underwear is a necessity, not a luxury.
The mission of The Undies Project is to provide new underwear to men, women, and children in need to improve their lives. They also strive to educate communities about this true, unmet need.
The inspiration to fulfill this unmet need came to Lucy Langley in 2014 while volunteering at Neighbor to Neighbor, a local Connecticut non-profit organization providing clothing and food to low-income residents. While sorting clothes for distribution she came to the realization that underwear was the most under-donated, yet most needed item of clothing.
Lucy Langley and Laura Delaflor co-founded The Undies Project in 2015, with the help of Neighbor to Neighbor, and became a registered public charity in 2016. They rely on the generosity of local communities, individuals, and businesses to donate money and product so that we can fulfill our mission. They also fundraise to purchase underwear at wholesale prices to donate to those less fortunate.
The Undies Project is hosting “Mardi Bra” until March 17th, 2023 donate a bra to help women or girls in need! They have already donated 463,867 pairs of underwear and bras to date!
