The Committee also seeks donations of unused items for the gift bags: Shampoo, shower caps, soap and other toiletries, cosmetics, children's clothing - especially coats, windbreakers, sweaters, jeans, socks; children's books (especially on bullying and self-esteem), and toys.

Also, go to your local dry cleaners and asked for clothing that hasn't been picked up in over a year.
