#BurnsvilleStrong to collect items to help people in need.

The #BurnsvilleStrong Community Drive invites everybody to donate items to help those in need. From December 11 to December 15, different items that are considered essential are requested for donations. These donations supply Cody’s Closet where students can use what they need when they need it.

Last year, the drive received around 1,000 items. This year, #BurnsvilleStrong holds the same goal. Anyone could drop off any items in the English teachers’ rooms or in the main office.

The Community Drive asks for various items every day of the week. Monday was paper towels, Tuesday was Chapstick, and Wednesday was lotion and toothpaste. Thursday was shampoo and conditioner while Friday was deodorant.
