unwrapped, standard sized bath and body products, such as shower gel, perfumed lotion, hand cream, soap, and body powder. Contributions
of flashlights with batteries, throw blankets, slipper socks with tread, towels and wash cloths would also be appreciated. These gifts
will be given to the Center in the Park's In Home Support Program consumers.
