Along with the canned and boxed foods (tuna, peanut butter, Jello, etc.) they have a great need for toiletries such as toothpaste, prewrapped toothbrushes, shampoo, female hygiene products, diapers, and most of all toilet tissue. There is also a need for dog and cat food.  Each month a particular item or type of item are highlighted for that month.  Toiletries are the item for March.
