Toiletries Collection Sunday January 24, 1-2 pm Gaywood Elementary School wishes to provide toiletries & hygiene items for students & their families. To assist them in this effort, the Justice League will be collecting donations of the following products on Sunday January 24: shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, powder, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, tissues, sanitary napkins, combs, brushes, and wash cloths. Gaywood has specifically requested smaller sizes of these products, including travel sizes, so that they may more easily bundle and distribute them. Note that these items will be available to all Gaywood students, not just the families in our food program. Donations can be dropped off in the narthex Sunday morning or in the parking lot from 1-2pm. Thank you for your generous support of the Gaywood community!
