Questions? We can answer that.

How long is the campaign going on?
April 1-30, 2012

What exactly are you collecting?
Socks n' Skivvies, of course! Acceptable donations of NEW packages of infant, child or adult socks and underwear of any kind for boys, girls, men and women. This includes but is not limited to long johns, baby socks, trouser socks, thermal or wool socks, knee socks, ankle or athletic socks, boxers, boxer briefs, men's briefs, women's underwear, and little boys and girls underwear. Other acceptable donations include diapers of all sizes and women's sport bras of all sizes.

Why collect only new socks and underwear?
Although some thrift stores and other outlets that provide clothing for people in need do accept used underwear and socks, even people who need them are hesitant to accept them. They don't like the idea of putting on someone else's intimate apparel. Also, many people don't think about donating these items. They throw them away, instead.

Where can I leave my donation of new, packaged socks and/or underwear?
This year (2012), you can drop off your Socks 'n' Skivvies donations at:
Your Wellness Connection
River City Stuio
Market 3
and Wilks Broadcasting.
Get directions to all locations here.

What if I'd rather give a cash donation?

How can I be sure my donation will actually help people in need?
