Drop Your Drawers

2020 Update

After careful consideration, we have decided to suspend the Drop Your Drawers campaign until 2021. The schools still have a large supply of socks and underwear left over from the 2019 Drop Your Drawers campaign.

We encourage you to donate to the Coverings for Kids campaign in lieu of Drop Your Drawers this year.

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.

Our 2019 goal was to collect 7,000 pairs of socks and underwear for Campbell County schools. Thanks to our wonderful community, we surpassed our goal and collected 10,612 pairs!
