With the cold of winter upon us the Rotary Club of Grand Island will host its annual Undie Sunday collection between Jan. 14-21. For 24 years, the Rotary Club has sponsored the collection of new and unused underclothing and socks that provide personal dignity, comfort and warmth, and are so much appreciated by those who receive them each year.

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

The donated items will be distributed to Community Missions and other agencies in the area.

Look for the distinctive red hampers or cans 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:
