The annual Mardi “Bra” event, run by The Undies Project, will take place in Greenwich from Monday, February 8th through Monday, February 22nd.
Donation bins are located throughout Greenwich, INCLUDING: at Angela Cosmai Salon; Aux Délices Greenwich and Riverside; First Bank of Greenwich; First United Methodist Church; Greenwich Bank and Trust; Habitatgreenwich; Inside the Armoire; Minute Men Cleaners, Cos Cob; Something Special Florists, and Sophia's.
For those who are homeless, living in shelters or who are on a low income, a bra is unattainable, or a big expense. For many, underwear is a necessity, not a luxury. No one should be deprived of the simple, daily necessity of underwear. New, clean underwear provides hygiene and physical comfort as well as dignity and self-esteem.
The Undies Project is accepting donations of new and gently used, clean, laundered bras. All sizes are needed, but in particular sizes 34-38. All donations received will be distributed through The Undies Project’s 27 partner agencies that help those in need.
The drive will also take place in Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Westport and Wilton. For a full list of participating businesses in each town visit theundiesproject.org/event.

About The Undies Project
The inspiration to create The Undies Project came to Lucy Langley in 2014 while volunteering at Neighbor to Neighbor, a non profit organization in Greenwich, CT providing food and clothing to low income residents.
While sorting clothes for distribution she came to the realization that underwear was the most under-donated, yet most needed item of clothing. She could not imagine what it would be like to go without this basic necessity. Imagine being homeless and having no access to laundry for clean underwear, or having to make the choice between putting a meal on the table or buying new underwear. It is unimaginable isn't it?
Lucy Langley and Laura Delaflor co-founded The Undies Project in 2015 with the help of Neighbor to Neighbor and became a registered 501(c)(3) public charity in its own right in 2016.
The Undies Project donates underwear through its partner organizations in Lower Fairfield, CT and Lower Westchester, NY counties who serve those in need.
