With the cold of winter upon us, the Rotary Club of Grand Island will host its annual Undie Sunday 2023 collection between Jan 22-29.

For 23 years, the Rotary Club has sponsored the collection of new and unused underclothing and socks, which provide personal dignity, comfort and warmth – and are so much appreciated by those who receive them each year.

There is a particular need of warm socks, T-shirts, men’s underwear (sizes large, extra-large and XX-large) and all women’s undergarments.

The donated items will be distributed to Community Missions and Journey’s End Refugee Services.

Look for the distinctive red hampers in locations around Grand Island to deposit your gift of undergarments and warm socks.

These will be at locations around the Island, including but not limited to the following churches:

√ Bible Fellowship, 1136 Baseline Road

√ Bible Presbyterian Church, 1650 Love Road

√ Island United Presbyterian, 1822 Huth Road
