5783 6th Grade Underwear Drive

Friendship Place logo - a blue circle that says "Friendship Place"The Machon Micah 6th Graders are once again sponsoring the Underwear Drive which benefits our neighbors at Friendship Place. Since 1999 Temple Micah has been proud to furnish new underwear and other necessities for clients at Friendship Place.

Learn more about our partnership with Friendship Place in the September/October 2022 Vine newsletter: “It’s So Much More Than Underwear: An Interview with Friendship Place’s Chris Cannedy“.

This year you can either bring your contributions to Yom Kippur services, OR arrange to have your donation sent directly to Friendship Place by donating online or scanning the QR code.

Please note: when donating online, you MUST purchase items from the wish list in order to have your donation shipped directly to Friendship Place. Feel free to share this QR code with friends and family!

Please note that AFTER YOM KIPPUR (October 5, 2022) all donations must be made online.

Friendship Place’s needs have grown and changed with the opening of The Brooks, a 50-unit building for families with children, and Valley Place, transitional housing for men and women who have been chronically homeless. If you’re donating this year, consider:

  • Laundry baskets: couples and individuals will leave Valley Place to set up homes of their own
  • Plus-size underwear for female bodies: most of DC’s homeless are male, but Friendship Place’s clientele is now about 40% female
  • T-shirts, preferably cotton, in any color and all sizes
  • Socks, socks, socks! Help augment Temple Micah’s partnership with Bombas – the company donated 7,750 pairs on our behalf, enough for 4-6 months

Thank you in advance for helping to make this year the most successful underwear drive in the history of Temple Micah!
