Finding Inspiration at Every Turn
Founded in 2017, Undergarment Society has since made a tremendous impact thanks to the help of our board members, volunteers and donors in the Charleston area.
The core of our work lies in the continuous passion and dedication to be of service to the women in our community. We work with our partner donors to aid various sectors in need through our monetary fundraising initiatives as well as undergarment donations.
Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
Eliza Chandler & Elizabeth Stribling launched The Undergarment
Society on Sunday, March 12, 2017, with a Mardi Bra Party. Eliza
was inspired by an article about such an event and decided to see
what she could do here in Charleston. Elizabeth had recently
taken her daughters to the local women’s march and wanted to do
something more. The inaugural event led to a collection of over
300 new bras and underwear.
In 2020, Elizabeth took a step back to pursue other interests (yet
remains an integral part of the group) and The Undergarment
Society instituted a new Board of Directors. The goal of the new
board was to establish a strong foundation for continued growth.
Currently, through word of mouth, The Undergarment Society has
flourished, with hundreds of parties and over 50,000
undergarments donated to our sister organizations.
Through generous grants from the Joanna Foundation & The Post
& Courier ; The Undergarment Society purchased a mobile
donation center, The US BUS, in order to serve more women.
