Show the love for people impacted by Hurricane Harvey
Where is the love? Well, in the case of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey, we can all show the love. But how? You might think that most people who experienced the storm and its aftermath need things like money, water, clothes, or boats. All true. But one of the big things they really need is underwear. Now you're probably thinking why would people need underwear? Well think about it your house was just destroyed in a storm, you may have had to swim for your life, and now you’re staying at a convention center or friend’s house, and walking around with smelly and stinky underwear (maybe even no underwear)! How comfortable would you feel (walking around, or even just being in public)? It would definitely not feel right. Show the love and help folks maintain their dignity.
New/packaged underwear for boys, girls, men or women, all sizes (even XXL) are needed. Hanes or Fruit of the Loom preferred. All donations will be sent to Undies for Everyone, a nonprofit organization based in Houston.
