Items most in need are deodorant sticks, bar soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and hair conditioner.

The Center for Civic Engagement recently offered a workshop for local educators and volunteers on how to effectively teach others about personal finance and budgeting. Click here to learn more.
