Now more than ever, people experiencing homelessness in Edmonton need access to new underwear. It continues to be one of the most requested items, but one of the least donated. Together we can change that.
Help us raise 10,000 NEW boxers, briefs, and bras between July 20 and 29!
$15 buys 5 NEW pairs of underwear.
YOU CRUSHED IT!
Friends, with your help, we demolished our original goal of 7,000 pairs! Thank you!
12,102 pairs of 10,000
NEW THIS YEAR: To do our part to minimize COVID-19 community spread, we are encouraging online donations. We’ll safely purchase underwear on your behalf! However, if you have physical underwear donations, please drop off at these locations.
The reality is…
People are wearing unclean, uncomfortable, and undignifying underwear— and sometimes, none at all.
Edmontonians who are homeless have fewer and fewer opportunities and places to go to meet their hygienic needs. The restrictions caused by COVID-19 have disproportionately affected people who are struggling on the street with little to no resources. With all the stresses and uncertainties our vulnerable neighbours are dealing with, you can ensure that they have comfort, dignity, health, and hygiene with new underwear.
