MANALAPAN — Girl Scouts from Troop 60451, Manalapan, recently partnered with Undies for Everyone, a national organization which provides children who are living in poverty or in crisis with new underwear.

The girls in Troop 60451, who are 9, 10 and 11 years old, collected more than 3,400 pairs of underwear with the assistance of generous donations from the community, according to troop leaders Lisa Korman and Jenn Chan.

The girls sorted the underwear into different sizes for boys and girls, and then gathered on June 16 at the Manalapan Recreation Center to package the underwear for distribution.

Each package consisted of seven pairs of underwear so the recipients can have a week’s worth of new, clean underwear. The underwear will be distributed through local charities, helping children in local communities, according to Korman and Chan.

The girls raised money to buy underwear by selling cookies. They shopped for the underwear, solicited family members and friends for donations, and designed several ideas for patches.
