Project Pants

Help us donate 82,100 items of underwear to those in need in our city

The impact of COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable in our city.

There is a real need for new and good quality items of underwear for those in need in our city.

We are launching Project Pants – a campaign to donate 82,100 new and good quality underwear – pants, socks and bras, to those who need it across our city this winter.

Can you help us?

 

Give Underwear

We are looking for new, good quality pants, socks and bras. We need these for men, women and children, in all sizes, with labels with sizing attached. 

Why not pick up a pack or few whilst doing your food shop, or order some online? You might want to consider buying/encouraging others to buy what you would buy for yourself or your family. Any gift, small or large, is very welcome.

We have Drop Off points located around the city – get in touch via the buttons below to find out location and timings.

If you would like to become a Drop Off point, get in touch with us!

Give Money

With COVID-19 restrictions you may find it easier to simply donate financially for underwear to be purchased by the Project Pants Team.

Why 82,100?

By Spring 2021, it is estimated that 82,100 people will be living in poverty in Edinburgh (Edinburgh Poverty Commission, 2020).

Further exacerbated by the impact of COVID-19, new and good quality underwear is in real shortage, even with the availability of clothes banks, and so this winter we are aiming to source 82,100 items of underwear for those in need. 

Spread the word!

We would love the whole of Edinburgh to hear about Project Pants and get involved.

Can you help us spread the word?

  • Use your local networks e.g. workplaces, neighbourhood WhatsApp / other social media groups to tell them about the campaign.
  • Follow us on Instagram @JustChristmas2020
  • Contact your local churches / community groups and tell them about what we are doing, encouraging them to get involved?
  • Do a sponsored event such as wearing (suitable!) pants over your trousers for the day, a sponsored week of walking (e.g. 82,100 steps for each person in poverty). Fun for all ages here! Collect your sponsorship money and go buy underwear with it, or ask people to pledge to donate underwear or pay for some via the website.
