Community Knitting Fall Collection

Mother Laura just received a desperate plea for these Toiletries. Our collection’s timing is just right to help. The need will increase greatly in the next few weeks as the winter shelters open in November. Next time you are at the food store, please throw one or two extra items in your cart. We thank you!
Every holiday season the Community Knitters chooses a project for giving, this season we have chosen to help our local soup kitchens supply their clients with toiletries. We will be collecting both full size (preferred) and travel size supplies which will be distributed to local soup kitchens and shelters.
We suggest:
soaps
shampoos
toothbrushes
toothpaste
deodorant
lotion
ladies sanitary products
shaving supplies
We will be collecting items at TKE through Thanksgiving.
Thank you for helping.
