Administrators for the Oneida County Fire Dispatch Facebook page are collecting items for the Rome Rescue Mission today.
From 12-3 p.m., hygiene items are being collected at the old Sears parking lot in Rome, next to Walmart on Rome-Taberg Road.
Items being accepted include soap, shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving creams, toothpaste, toothbrushes and more. The Rescue Mission announced earlier this week that they’re in need of personal hygiene items for both men and women.
The donations will be delivered to the Rome Rescue Mission following the collection.
If you’re unable to stop by the collection today, you can drop off the hygiene item donations to the Rome Rescue Mission at 414 E. Dominick St. Their hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
