Key items include:

  • Garbage bags (50-55 gallons)
  • Paper towels
  • Paper napkins
  • Foodservice gloves
  • Powdered coffee creamer
  • Sugar
  • Salad dressing
  • Tylenol, Ibuprofen & Aspirin
  • Deodorant
  • Disposable razors
  • Ear plugs

Bring your donations to the front desk and we will deliver them to BEDS Plus at the end of the month. See a full list of supplies.
