Neshaminy High School's Interact Club has extended its annual toiletry drive until Nov. 16 in order to help families that were forced out of their homes following Hurricane Sandy.
"Every year the Interact Club at Neshaminy High School runs a Toiletry Drive for Needlework Guild of America. We were just about to wrap up our drive when Hurricane Sandy hit so we decided to extend the campaign and broaden it to include other schools in the district," club advisor Suzi Drake told Patch.
The high school, all three middle schools in the district, Joseph Federbar, Oliver Heckman and Herbert Hoover elementary schools as well as the district's Facilities Department are now involved in the drive, she said.
The club is collecting items that are used on a daily basis such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant – basically everything needed to get ready in the morning. In addition, the Interact club will also be collecting gift cards for grocery stores and gasoline to be donated to the Red Cross.
The drive will run from now through November 16. After that, the items will be taken to NGA who will distribute the items to families displaced by the hurricane.
Donated items can be dropped off at the participating schools. If taken to the high school, those items can be dropped off at the main office, English IPC and room G213.
