In 2014, Coder Elementary, unleashed a different kind of service project. Word in the community was that the Aledo Clothes Closet was in need of new, unopened packages of underwear to benefit children and their families in Aledo ISD. Coder Cats stepped in and held its first “UNDIE 500.” That year, the children were challenged to bring in at least 500 pairs of new undies. The kids were so excited about helping others that they brought in more than 1,000 pairs of undies. The “UNDIE 500” was such a huge success that in 2015, they decided to hold the Second Annual Undie 500 in which students were challenged to bring in at least 1,100 pairs. Once again, the Coder Cats answered the call and surpassed that goal by bringing in a little over 1,200 pairs of undies.
