Collection: Underwear for the Underserved
We’ve all heard the line from our mothers, “Always wear clean underwear in case you’re in an accident.” And most of us have the luxury of wearing clean underclothes daily. Unfortunately, for thousands of homeless and underserved folks in San Francisco with no access to laundry facilities, clean underclothes are not a reality. Along with our friends at St. Anthony Foundation, all Cole Hardware locations will serve as drop-off sites for new underwear during the month of September. For obvious reasons, we can only accept new items in their original, unopened packaging and/or with manufacturer tags. We will be happy to take any new undergarments—including underpants, T-shirts, socks, and bras. Don’t forget children’s sizes, too!
In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, the mission of St. Anthony Foundation is to feed, heal, shelter, clothe, and lift the spirits of those in need and to create a society in which all people flourish. They are committed to providing the poor of San Francisco with basic needs and services as a gateway to reclaiming their sense of dignity and progressing toward stability. No need for designer duds, plain tighty-whities will be gratefully accepted!
