TPW Collects Items for Women Veterans of Louisiana


TPW received a message from the Women Veterans of Louisiana stating that they already have plenty of deodorant, dental care items, chapstick, soap (bar), books and hot cocoa. These items are not needed. However, the organization is in short supply and is very much in need of the following:

*female hygiene items ex: pads and tampons.
*1st Aid Items ex: bandages or antibiotics
*Hair items: ex: hair ties and brushes
*Shampoo, conditioner
*Powdered drinks for individual water
