Huntington Public Library has partnered with St. Hugh of Lincoln in Huntington Station, to bring a mobile shower unit to the community, which will provide access to an overlooked necessity to the homeless and unsheltered. As part of the Great Give Back this year, the library will be accepting donations of clean, NEWLY packaged undergarments for men and women. These garments will be donated to Hands Across Long Island for their UnderAware Underwear campaign as an ongoing effort to provide fresh, clean garments to the permanent addition of the mobile shower truck.
Due to hygiene and safety reasons, only NEW underwear will be accepted. Specifically, we are seeking donations of:
- T-shirts in Medium, Large and Extra Large,
- Boxer Briefs/Regular Briefs/Boxer Shorts in Medium, Large and Extra Large
- Sports Bras in Medium, Large and Extra Large,
- Panties in Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large
