Undee Sunday happens every November at the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, Wilmington, Delaware when we collect thermal underwear for the homeless.
November 14, 2021 was our most recent Undee Sunday.
With the winter and cold temperatures approaching, our homeless friends are in dire need of long underwear. Along with your pledge of talents and dollars during this stewardship season, we think of giving this small token of love to our needy friends. If you have questions, please contact Alice Smith or D-L Casson. If you don’t have time to shop, you can give SsAM a check, payable to SsAM, with UNDEE SUNDAY in the memo line. You may also click here to use your credit card. Again, put “Undee Sunday” in the comment line.
In 2020, we collected a record number of thermal underwear
Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, in 2020 we were able to exceed last year’s contribution to the Friendship House Clothing Bank. The Community Advocacy Committee thanks all of you who helped make Undee Sunday a tremendous success.
Forman Mills donated 100 sets of thermal underwear for children, women and men. Dariel Janerette worked with Luvenia, Manager, the Wilmington store; Rebecca Slutsky, Forman Mills Operations and Marketing Coordinator; and Kristen Reisor, of Friendship House, to facilitate the donation.
With your generous cash contributions, Eudel Drain, Joan Janerette, Cameron Easton, and Dariel purchased an additional 42 sets of thermals and 120 pairs of socks at Forman Mills and delivered the undees to the clothing bank. Each resident of Andrews Place received a set of thermals and socks. The remaining Undee Sunday funds will be used to purchase hats, gloves and scarfs.
