Local Shop Owner Collects Underwear for Harvey Victims

13 WHAM - "Hurricane Harvey is being called one of the worst storms in American history, and it's easy to forget about all the basic necessities so many victims are lacking.

Joanna Alberti, owner of Philosophie's in Spencerport, is collecting packaged underwear for men, women and children, which she'll ship to the Houston area.

Alberti got the idea from Author Brene Brown, who highlighted the dire need for a piece of clothing we often forget to donate.

"I thought this is a great opportunity to have everyone drop off underwear here, because it something that's easily accessible," said Alberti.

"You can buy a few packages and really help people make an impact," Alberti added.

The Texas Barbeque joint is also collecting donations through September 14th.

The underwear will be shipped to a non-profit called Undies for Everyone."
