A new season begins for In The Garden

ITGAs we gear up for a new fall with In The Garden, we need to replenish our supply closet for our friends' needs along the lines of personal items.  We hope to expand our offerings this year, so if as you shop any of you want to pull together items for those in need downtown, here is what we hope to have on hand:
HYGIENE: large bars of soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant, razors, lotion, tampons or feminine napkins, disposable diapers, toilet paper
CAMPING NEEDS: batteries (C and AA), tarps or plastic sheeting, rope, canned heat, food items in pop-top cans or ready to eat
CLOTHING:we are NOT going to try to provide clothing, since we do not have a place to keep these, but always needed are ... men's and ladies'  socks, men's underwear
