Items were collected throughout Clark County area city offices, Clark County Police and Fire departments, and recreation sites including Firstenburg Community Center. Elementary school students from across district decorated approximately 30 collection boxes with original artwork for the effort.

More than 1,500 students among the district’s six high schools received much needed items including laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, feminine hygiene, deodorant, lotion, gloves, socks and toilet paper.
