Project Undercover aims to meet the emergency needs of 20,000 kids by supplying 1,000,000 diapers and 180,000 pairs of underwear and socks every year.
• Every child has the right to a clean, dry bottom.
• Our community is obligated to provide the bare necessities to all kids in need.
• All people should be treated with respect, dignity, compassion and integrity.
Through a unique partnership with the Girl Scouts of RI, Project Undercover began as a small group of volunteers organizing an annual diaper drive. For almost 15 years they successfully collected and distributed thousands of diapers every April. But with approximately 45,000 Rhode Island kids living in poverty (20,000 under the age of seven), the Project needed to expand.
In 2010, Project Undercover was formalized as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. We have an active volunteer board, and we work with 25 partner agencies around the state to distribute diapers, socks, wipes, and underwear to RI families in need. We use data from the RI Department of Human Services to help us make the greatest possible impact.
