Motlow State Smyrna campus hosting care package drive for homeless

Dec. 11, 2015

The Motlow State Community College Smyrna campus is hosting a care-package drive for the homeless until Dec. 18, according to Estelle Davis, secretary at the Smyrna campus.

"As we all know there are many people far less fortunate than us during the holiday season," said Davis. "There are many everyday things we take for granted like having toothpaste, a toothbrush, comb, soap or deodorant."

All care packages must be dropped off at the Smyrna Center admissions office and should be placed in a gallon-sized zipper bag. Please deliver the care packages by Dec. 18, so they can be donated to individuals before Christmas.

Ideas for items in the care packages include: dried fruit packages, peanut butter crackers, nonperishable food, lip balm, packs of tissue, toothbrushes, small tubes of toothpaste, combs, soap, hand lotion, sample-sized shampoo, granola bars, crackers, packs of gum, hand wipes, socks, hats, scarfs and gloves.

"The ideas are endless," added Davis. "Even the simplest gift could be the change a person needs to help them start a new life."
