It’s that time again! Undy Sunday is back for its 27th year!
The Undy Sunday campaign provides an ample supply of underwear, socks, for the thousands of kindergarten through eighth-grade students in Collier County. Our goal is to collect much-needed underwear and socks for low-income family boys & girls. The children’s families cannot afford to purchase these basic necessities. The generosity of your congregation will help the children get off to a good start with the new school year.
With the outreach involving 33 religious interfaith churches and synagogues, Catholic Charities’ volunteers received an abundance of undergarments and socks from the church donations in 2020, which were sorted, labeled, and packaged for delivery to 37 selected Elementary & Charter schools, plus six Social Service organizations who assist needy women and children in our community.
This year, due to keeping you and our children safe, we are going digital! We ask your assistance in collecting new and unused underwear and socks size 2 through 10 (small sizes preferred) but, we have gone online and will not be bringing donation boxes to churches and synagogues.
This year, you can purchase items directly from the Catholic Charities Amazon Charity Wish List. We have also set up an online donation portal that will 100% go to purchasing items for the students!
Amazon Smile & Undy Sunday Wish List
With Amazon Smile, the UndySunday team has a Charity Wish List where you can find our current socks and undies needs.

Cash donations will also be accepted and will be used to purchase additional underwear and socks and to meet other needs of low-income children. Cash or check donations will be used for the needs of K through 8th graders.
