Underwear Because We Care is excited to announce the dates for this year's underwear collection. 

The campaign will begin on September 21, 2014 and conclude October 26, 2014. 

The campaign will collect packages of new underwear; underpants, undershirts, bras and socks for Women, Children and Men. 

We will also collect clean, serviceable prosthetic bras for distribution to women in need.

There will be numerous points in the Quad Cities area to drop off underwear, please check our facebook page: Underwear Because We Care for a complete listing of locations. 

We currently have approximately 30 drop off locations (in Iowa and Illinois) and are in the process of developing more. 

The Riverboat Development Authority has provided a grant of $1500 and Thrivent Financial has provided $1000 to kick off the campaign.

All underwear collected or purchased with cash donations will be distributed to organizations that provide shelter and services for the needy and homeless citizens. 

Last year we distributed to 13 organizations who provided shelters and services and this year we currently have 17 organizations who are participating.

Please call Grant Curtis at 563-528-0835 for information or email Underwear@mediacombb.net with a subject line of Underwear Donations.
