When people donate items of clothing to those in need, undergarments are the most overlooked item, yet these items are equally – or more – important than other garments. Bras and panties are essential for women and girls! The shortage leaves many women in need without adequate undergarments.
Classy Living Society is coming to the rescue! In December, Society Saturday, CLS’s quarterly synchronized community service event, will transform into Society Tuesday – in correlation with Giving Tuesday, which is scheduled for Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
We are pleased to announce our Society Tuesday initiative, The Underwear Project! We will be working in partnership with the nonprofit organization Allwrite Community Partners on their Bras & Books project. It is a call to all CLS Societies to purchase two brand new bras and two brand new pairs of panties to be donated to women in need – specifically women in correctional facilities!
Correctional facilities only provide a limited number of undergarments to inmates; bras and panties outside of that provision must be purchased by the inmate from the commissary. If an inmate has a limited amount of funds in her account, she must choose other necessities over undergarments. CLS is pleased and honored to be involved in this important collaborative charitable effort for Society Tuesday!
