CTV Winnipeg: Winnipeg Blue Bombers partner with student-led organization in undergarment drive

February 26, 2024 — 

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have partnered with a student-led organization to collect new undergarments and donations for people in need.

From now until March 8, socks and underwear can be dropped off in collection bins at the Bombers store. Those who donate will receive a 15 per cent discount on merchandise.

“The Bombers have been super generous for this project,” said Allison Balasko, one of the students behind the campaign.

The Underwearness Project was started by a group of University of Manitoba students in 2023 and aims to address the critical shortage of undergarments and socks, specifically for women. Donations are collected and passed along to Siloam Mission.
