One of the most requested items from people in need is clean, fresh,new underwear. Really, why should anyone be without? Recognizing this need, along with the fact that many are too shy to ask, the DIOPA deacons will be organizing the Boxers, Bloomers and Briefs Drive, as our annual Diocesan Convention outreach program.
Here is how to help:
Purchase a pack or two of underwear in your size, style, and gender. Then, do so for your spouse. Maybe even buy some in the size of your children, or your Uncle, or even Grandma. This should provide a rich diversity for distribution to clothing closets around the diocese.
Contact your local deacon about collection points near you, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are coming to the Convention on 10/21-10/22 at The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, we will also have a collection point there.
With your help, we collected well over two thousand pairs of blue jeans last year. We believe, with your continued support, we can collect ten thousand pairs of boxers, bloomers, and briefs. Let's really show our love and generosity for others, and provide a bit of dignity to those who need it the most.
