The Waukesha Salvation Army launched a mid-summer “personal hygiene drive” in order to replenish depleted stocks of personal toiletries and men’s underclothes that it regularly provides to people in need.

Donated items may be dropped off at the double red doors of the Salvation Army’s Food Pantry, located adjacent to the rear parking lot of the organization's Community and Worship Center, at 445 Madison St. in downtown Waukesha.

Needed items include: newly purchased tubes of toothpaste, bars of soap, bottles of body wash, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, shaving razors, hand lotion, toothbrushes, pocket combs, foot powder, deodorant, dental floss, Q-tips, hand sanitizer, facial tissue and clothing including T-shirts, boxer shorts, socks, winter hats, gloves and scarves.

Salvation Army’s shelter showers are made available free of charge to homeless men from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Friday.
