Second Annual Undie 500 a HUGE Success!
Undie 500 season is in full swing here at CTKD! So far, nine Undie 500 drives have brought in more than 7,000 pairs of new underwear and socks, with many more teams still collecting.
What is the Undie 500?
The Undie 500 is a underwear collection drive that challenges participants to collect as much new, packaged underwear and socks as possible to support CTKD. The Undie 500 was started in 2012 by William Wallis, who collected nearly 1,200 new pairs of underwear and socks as part of his Eagle Project for Boy Scouts. The project was so successful, that CTKD decided to make it an annual event.
CTKD provides 5 new pairs of underwear and 5 new pairs of socks to every student who visits our shop. In 2012, CTKD distributed 17,545 free pairs of underwear and 18,434 free pairs of socks to more than 3,700 students in need. In 2013, CTKD is on track to distribute more than 20,000 pairs of each to more than 4,000 students. We need your help to make sure we can meet the growing demand!
Who can participate?
Teams from service organizations, Girl/Boy Scouts, schools, sports teams, businesses and religious communities may participate by collecting underwear as a group, or challenge another team to a collection competition.
