Drop Your Drawers

Drop Your Drawers returns this November and December!

Drop Your Drawers

Goal: 7,000

Total Donations for 2023: 8,563

The initiative aims to meet a crucial need for public schools in Campbell County: keeping Family Resource Centers’ emergency supplies of socks and underwear stocked. Schools hand out 100 or more pairs monthly to children who need them due to accidents at school or circumstances at home.

Donations of socks and underwear can be any size and must be in their original packaging. Bras and t-shirts are also accepted.

Because parents are often unable to bring fresh underwear and socks to their children during school hours, children can miss crucial learning time in the classroom. Keeping centers’ supplies stocked also allows them to redirect funding to provide other valuable resources.

Since launching at CCPL in 2015, the campaign has made its way to other counties and states. To learn more about the need for new underwear and socks, watch our video with Campbell County Family Resource Center Coordinators below.
