Drop Your Drawers

Drop Your Drawers

Our Drop Your Drawers campaign provides clean underwear and socks to public schools in Campbell County, meeting a crucial need for Family Resource Centers’ emergency supplies.

The need is great. Schools are handing out 100 or more pairs each month to children who need them due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents are often unable to bring fresh underwear and socks to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.

To learn more about the need for new underwear and socks, watch our video with Campbell County Family Resource Center Coordinators below.
