But I do have extra stuff that I don't need, such as toiletries, shampoo and conditioner, razors, that I've gotten for free/almost free.
And, I just saw a post from Crystal at MoneySavingMom.com with an address and info about sending stuff to help the tornado victims. The relief efforts seem to be focused in Joplin, but my understanding is that the organization is also reaching out to all the smaller areas around Joplin that were hit.
::Non-perishable Food (most are without electricity and gas, so sending food that doesn’t need to be cooked is especially helpful)
::Toiletries (deodorant, shampoo, soap, body wash, razors, shaving cream, toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.)
::Diapers, wipes, formula
Please send the items to:
3405 S. Hammons Blvd
Joplin, MO 64804
They will distribute them to those who need them most.
Be sure to package your items securely. Wrap any bottles or items that might leak in plastic, to prevent spills in the box. If you are sending towels or clothing, please send items that are in good condition.
