Drop Your Drawers
We have collected 98 percent of our Drop Your Drawers goal! We will continue to collect packages of new underwear, sizes 4-16, until Dec. 31.
Drop Your Drawers
Include packages of new boys’ and girls’ underwear, sizes 4-16, on your holiday shopping list, then drop them off at your nearby branch for our Drop Your Drawers campaign Nov. 1-Dec. 31. Donations will help replenish Campbell County public elementary schools’ supplies of emergency underwear and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Centers.
The need is great. Schools are handing out 30 to 100 pairs each month to children who need clean underwear due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents often are unable to bring fresh underwear to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.
To learn more about the need for new underwear, watch our video with Campbell County Family Resource Center Coordinators below or on YouTube!

There were many, many heroes who made last year’s Drop Your Drawers a success, including:
- Mrs. Jean Ritze visited our Newport Branch on Dec. 29 asking if her donation of 120 pairs was tax deductible (it was and still is, by the way). When she was told the branch was 215 away from its individual goal of 2,000 pairs, she returned the next day with 237 more.
- The Fort Thomas community donated $500 to buy new underwear.
