The world may have changed, but the challenges of homelessness have not.

Let’s be honest. Considering what we’ve all gone through in this dumpster fire of a year, it would be easy to put ourselves first. But when we stop and look around, we quickly see that need hasn’t taken the year off. It just kept on coming.

So at Simon/Myers, we’re bringing back “Knickers in a Bunch,” our long underwear drive for those experiencing homelessness.

Last year’s drive was remarkable, and our collected donations of long underwear were in the grateful hands of those in need as fast as we could pull them out of the box. But this year, in the midst of the pandemic and a stressed economy, the need is heightened.

To keep this population safe and warm through the winter, and to meet the needs of the 20-30 people who enter the program at DuPage PADS each month, we are kicking off Knickers in a Bunch 2020 even earlier. Ready to help? Then let’s do this thing! Here are the details:

·     We need NEW long underwear, both tops and bottoms

·     Both mens and womens, size L, XL, and XXL

Here's a nifty Amazon link queued up with plenty of knickers you can ship instantly to the shelter.


If you’re buying somewhere else, you can ship all donations to:


601 W. Liberty

Wheaton, IL 60187


Or simply give them to any Simon/Myers employee – we’re happy to be your elf. And thanks again for supporting this important effort.
