The Banquet is Collecting Donated Underwear
They’re mentioning the unmentionables at The Banquet in Sioux Falls.
They’re collecting brand-new undergarments to give to Banquet guests later this month.
Project Director Madeline Shields tells me many Banquet guests go without socks and underwear because they can’t buy them at the thrift stores where they buy most of their clothing.
She says they need bras, underwear (boxers for men and teens), undershirts and socks for men, women and children, and the best way to donate is to just buy your own size.
Since they don’t have drop-boxes this time, the donations can be brought to The Banquet, which is located at 900 East 8th Street, the corner of 8th and Indiana, by Monday, December 17th.
The Banquet’s office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm or during meals until 7:30pm.
The new socks and undergarments will be given to Banquet guests during the evening meal on the 20th and 21st.
It’s something you might not think about, but imagine going without.
You can help–make a donation.
