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.

Project Undercover believes that every child has the right to a clean, dry bottom. That's why we provide diapers, socks, underwear and baby wipes to help the approximately 20,000 children under age 7 throughout Rhode Island living in poverty. (There are approximately 45,000 total children living in poverty in RI.) Project Undercover collects and distributes these items to more than two-dozen community action partnerships and social service agencies throughout the state based on data from the RI Department of Human Services. These partner agencies are then able to provide supplies directly to struggling families in their communities.

Through our partnerships with community action programs and social service agencies within RI, we are able to meet our goal of providing diapers, socks and underwear to kids in need. Through our fundraising and diaper drives, we are able to purchase product to distribute to our partner agencies.

We maintain an open dialogue with our partner agencies and collect data from those agencies related to the product we provide to those agencies and the needs of their clientele.

We have accomplished the distribution of over a million items to kids in need in RI every year.
