Giving to your local food bank is a great way to help those in need. And while the word “food” may be in the name, it’s not the only thing they need and request from their donors. Everyday essentials like toilet paper, dental hygiene items (like toothbrushes) and bundles of socks and underwear are also desired and very much in demand. And just like food, if you want to give these items, give new, wrapped and unopened packages when you donate. Lightly used items in any of these categories are unwanted and can’t be given away.
