Donations are needed for the success of the event. Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate personal hygiene products, especially individually rolled toilet paper, paper towels, diapers and baby wipes. The items will be distributed at the Community Resource Day in December and at future Community Resource Days throughout the winter. Monetary donations are also accepted.
