California Briefs men’s underwear announces a matching donations program for the POTS Bronx Community Center.

Earlier this month, Part of the Solution (POTS) announced its need for underwear donations for its Bronx community center to help men and women who fall through society’s cracks get back on their feet.

“Staples as men's socks, white T-shirts and briefs are desperately needed", said James Brannigan who has worked at POTS, on Webster Ave. in Bedford Park for 18 years. He said 95% of clothes donated are for women and children.

"It's pretty funky when they need something as simple as underwear - something we wash and put on every day," Brooks said. "If everyone came together and did what they could, we could really make a difference."

Today, California Briefs is announcing that it is creating a matching program for anyone who would like to donate through its website. Anyone who would like to donate can go here and make a purchase of mens’ underwear for donation. California Briefs will double the order and ship it to:

Part of the Solution
2763 Webster Ave.
Bronx, NY 10458

We recommend donors purchase Calvin Klein 365 briefs. California Briefs will match anyone’s donation and will ship all donated goods at no charge.
