JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Dignity U Wear's Undie Campaign wrapped up its most successful drive ever Monday.

The Jacksonville-based foundation expected to meet or exceed 100,000 pieces of brand new underwear it will be able to provide to children, women in crisis and veterans. The number is nearly double the foundation's highest collection in the history of the campaign.

The staff of lead sponsor Brumos, with the help of Jacksonville Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville, delivered new underwear that was donated by the public and their customers at their seven locations around northeast Florida.

They also awarded a Jaguars gift package valued at more than $4,000.
