Back to school undie driveAs summer draws to a close and the new academic year approaches, The Undie Chest is excited to kick off its annual Back to School Undie Drive. 

With a mission to promote dignity and comfort for students, this drive aims to provide clean and comfortable underwear to students in Title 1 schools through our 
Everyone Deserves Underwear (EDU) program.

By rallying together as a community, we can empower students to focus on their studies confidently instead of worrying about underwear.

Teachers Are AwesomeWe forget how important a bra is for a young lady going through puberty. One of my favorite stories that I like to share often, was from a teacher in a rural town in the south, that took the time and effort to go above and beyond to help one of her students. This is a great example of how teachers go the extra mile to make sure their students can thrive in school and in their personal lives. 

A teacher contacted us that one of her students in the 6th grade was in desperate need of a larger-sized bra, 44G to be exact.

When there is a need that no one is filling sometimes you just have to step out on faith and solve it yourself. That is what Elaine Birks-Mitchell, did when she founded The Undie Chest. 

In a world where fast fashion dominates the retail landscape, the textile industry has significantly contributed to environmental pollution and social challenges.
