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.
