Socks & Underwear Drive

Our Basic Human Needs programs are in need of new, adult-sized socks and underwear for their guests. So we're trying to collect 500 pairs of socks and 500 pairs of underwear in the 50 days of Easter - beginning April 4th, Easter Sunday, and lasting until May 23rd, Pentecost Sunday.  

If you're a program in need of socks and underwear, you can request them below.

To make this happen, we need your help!

Here's how: 

  1. Buy new packs of adult-sized socks and underwear online. Mix up the sizes! Plus-sized people especially are often left without these basic necessities.

  2. When checking out, ship items directly to Episcopal Charities at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10025. 

  3. You can shop from our Amazon Wish List at ecny.charity/500wishlist, and if you select Episcopal Charities as your AmazonSmile beneficiary, you double your impact! 

  4. If you'd prefer to send us money and let us take care of the details, you can do so here, or by texting FIVEHUNDRED to 41444.

  5. That's it! Sit back and relax and know you've made a huge difference in someone's quality of life.
