Lions Club begins annual toiletries collection

By Ken Kennedy
Project Coordinator

The Riderwood Lions Club will hold its annual collection of Toiletries for the Homeless on November 2 through November 20 and is asking every Riderwood Resident and Staff member to participate in this worthwhile endeavor. Collecting, packaging and shipment, of all donated items will be performed by the personnel of Riderwood’s Housekeeping and delivered to Shepherd’s Table in Silver Spring for their distribution to the homeless.

Items that can be donated are: hand lotions, deodorants, toothbrushes, toothpastes, soap bars, wash cloths, hand towels, new or used bath towels, small mirrors, pocket combs, shaving creams, disposable razors, shampoos and conditioners. All items should be new except as noted.

So, during November 2 thru November 20, please gather up your donation of toiletry items and place them in one of the collection containers located near the front desk in each of the four Riderwood community buildings. For additional information please check our Riderwood Community & TV Bulletin Boards or contact Lion Ann Casale at 301-572-7730. Thank you for your consideration and contribution.
