EDPR NA Volunteers Give Back to Deserving Children
On Friday, May 15, a group of EDPR NA employees spent the day volunteering with Undies for Everyone, a nonprofit organization providing clean underwear to economically disadvantaged children in the Houston area.
Volunteers spent three hours sorting donated packages of underwear into bags of two pairs each, labeling them by size and preparing them for shipment. These packages were then mailed to Houston-area schools and other organizations that provide for underprivileged children.
Undies for Everyone’s mission is to enhance the self-esteem, dignity, hygiene, and success of economically disadvantaged students by providing them with clean underwear. The organization is able to accomplish this by providing underwear directly to students and to school nurses, all within Houston.
According to its website, Undies for Everyone provides packages of underwear to eight of the largest Houston-area school districts; this includes more than 340,000 students and about 60% of all enrolled students.
Undies for Everyone welcomes volunteers to help package underwear at Christ Church Presbyterian in Bellaire every second and fourth Sundays of the month at 11:15 a.m.
