Along with certain food staples, they are in particular need of hygiene products, paper goods and household detergents.  These items are expensive and are not provided by the Food Bank.  The list of needed items includes dish liquid, laundry detergent, bath soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, napkins, flour, sugar, sugar substitute, cooking oils, coffee, boxed crackers, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup and relish.

If you have a donation of any of these items, please drop them off at the First Congregational Church office Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 p.m. or in Gifford Hall on Sunday mornings, Tuesday evenings or anytime on the last day of the drive, Saturday, March 23.
