Hurricane Irma victims in South Florida are in desperate need of personal hygiene products, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and deodorant.
If you would like to help, the Florida State University community will be collecting donations from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
FSU students and volunteers will be on hand to pack the items into bags. Anyone wishing to donate can drive through the circle at the plaza level of the Tucker Center on Pensacola Street and hand off donations to waiting FSU staff members.
FSU is partnering with Leon County government, which will have non-profit agencies distribute the bags to those in need.
