Help Houston Students In-Need with Undies for Everyone
Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Thirty five percent of Houston children live in poverty. For many, basics like underwear are overlooked. Come help underprivileged schoolchildren by volunteering with Undies for Everyone (UFE). UFE is a nonprofit organization that provides new underwear to disadvantaged elementary and middle school students to keep them clean, confident and in class.
Signup at http://bit.ly/UFEVOLUNTEER to help sort and pack bags of undies in a fun and educational environment. Packings run approximately 2 hours. There is something for all ages, but children under 6 require adult supervision.
