A choir of preschool children sang a blues version of the “Alphabet Song” and a professional basketball player admitted to feeling uncomfortable near a clothesline of underwear at the kick-off of a local charity’s second annual drive to collect new underwear for the needy.

The event was held at local public broadcasting station WJCT studios Feb. 1. Dignity-U-Wear Director of Development Cindy Sadler asked the approximately 100 people attending to spend the following six weeks collecting “bagged or tagged” underwear to donate to the Myrtle Street charity.

Dignity donates more than $15 million worth of new clothing to charities in 31 states, distributing clothes to almost 70 local charities."
