When you think about donating to organizations and helping those in need, you usually think about donating food, toiletries, and used clothing items like shirts, jackets, and pants. Rarely do you think about one of the most basic necessities we all need – underwear.
Since you can’t donate underwear used, it has become one of the most overlooked and under donated items in shelters all around the world. That is why Beau Undies has dedicated our efforts to give back to places where there is need – to make sure no one is deprived of the simple, daily necessity of clean underwear that many of us take for granted.
Every time someone uses Beau Undie’s hashtag #SubscriptionOnAMission on Instagram, Beau Undies will donate a new pair of undies to an organization in need. Beau Undie’s next scheduled donation is to the Los Angeles Women’s Shelter better known as the Downtown Women’s Center.
The Downtown Women’s Center is the only organization in Los Angeles that is focused on exclusively serving and empowering homeless women.
Founded in 1978, DWC was the first permanent supportive housing provider for women in the U.S. Beau Undies and the Downtown Women’s Center both have a strong commitment to helping women and hope to spread awareness of those in need and ways to help.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area and would like to donate or volunteer with the Downtown Women’s Center, please visit their website in the link below.
The Downtown Women’s Center is located at 442 S. San Pedro Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013 and accepts donations on Monday through Sunday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Please see the link below for more information on items you can donate:
