A nonprofit collecting new bras and underwear for women in need
A Gift of Dignity
Imagine being uprooted from your home, with nothing but the clothes on your back. In South Carolina, hundreds of women and young girls escape unsafe conditions a year, only to find themselves lacking the most basic needs. New bras and underwear are not a luxury, but because of the cost, women and girls in dire need often go without.

How You Can Help
"Kudos to Elizabeth and The Undergarment Society for taking the initiative to collect and donate much needed undergarments for women and children in need! Most Thrive clients, survivors of domestic violence, flee their homes with only the clothing they are wearing. The need for supplemental clothing is dire, and we are so thankful to Elizabeth and Society members for providing such a necessary service to our community.

Having hosted a "Party with a Purpose" for the Undergarment Society, I experienced first hand this organization's powerful mission and importance in our community. It is unfortunate that there is such a critical need for this type of support, but the US approaches its cause with grace, instilling hope and empowerment in women who are facing domestic violence. During each "party", US is educating the community on the needs of victims, critical statistics, and securing more and more necessary resources for those who are facing these terrible circumstances in life, and it's all delivered in a very low-pressure, easygoing style.
