Rotaract Club collecting items for students in need

The Rotaract Club of Sycamore is partnering with the DeKalb County Regional Office of Education for a community-wide hygiene supply drive benefiting local students in need.

The service organization is collecting new, unopened hygiene items such as soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, deodorant, feminine hygiene products and more.

Donations can be dropped off at Sycamore Jewel-Osco, DeKalb Jewel-Osco, Sycamore Walgreens, DeKalb Walgreens and the Sycamore Park District Building. Large donation boxes can be found near the front of the stores.

Collections will be accepted throughout the month of September and will be delivered to the ROE for distribution to students.
