The 2018 Undies Project Mardi “Bra” campaign starts January 29 and organizers are asking for the community’s help and support in the Greenwich and Stamford area.
“We are collecting new, and gently used, bras to donate to those less fortunate who are on low incomes,” said Lucy Langley and Laura Delaflor in a release on Wednesday. “For them a bra is a big expense.”
The Undies Project urges the community to take the time to purchase a new bra, or to look in their drawers for gently used, hardly worn bras that they no longer need.
There is always a shortage of bras of all sizes, but in particular sizes 34-38.
Bras can be dropped off at the following local businesses from Monday, January 29 until Tuesday, February 13.
Inside the Armoire: 45 East Putnam Ave, Greenwich
Professional Physical Therapists: 86 Harvard Ave, Stamford
Sportsplex: 49 Brown House Rd, Stamford
Susan Hanover Designs: 89 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich
Vertical Addiction: 575 South Pacific St, Stamford
Some local businesses are getting in on the fun and holding their own in-house Mardi “Bra” drives: the Greenwich and Old Greenwich offices of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and Titan Advisors in Stamford.
All donations received will be distributed to local organizations that help those in need.
