Network of Community Ministries, which continues to coordinate the volunteer and donation efforts to help those impacted by the Oct. 20 tornado, reports that community support has been especially plentiful in the donation of household items, such as dishes, bedding and small appliances, so the list of items needed has been revised. Items still needed are as follows:

Personal Hygiene Items

  • Full-size shampoo, conditioner, body wash
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste


  • New packaged men’s, women’s and children’s underwear
  • Coats (all sizes)
  • Men’s winter clothes
  • Closed-toed shoes and boots for men, women and children


  • Non-perishable food items

Items can be dropped off at Network, 741 S. Sherman St., during normal business hours (9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday or Friday 9 a.m.-noon).
