Shelby and volunteers will be collecting much-needed toiletry items, socks, undergarments for elementary through high school age students.

They are also in need of new jackets and warm items. Supporters can also make monetary donations as well.

Volunteers will be wearing masks and following social distancing protocols during this event.

They will ask shoppers to pick up items when they go into the store and drop off their donations in a collection bin once they exit Walmart. You will notice the big CBS 6 News tent.
