State Street group rounding up hygiene items for those in need

The State Street Area Association is gathering essential hygiene products to help those in need in the community, calling it the Love Campaign.

Organizers say they are in need of soap, shampoo, deodorant, tissues and similar items. If you want to contribute, you can find collection boxes at Lucabe Coffee, Dancing Goat Cafe in the Columbus Learning Center, Ivy Tech Community College Columbus, Guitar City and Rock Gym.

There will be a giveaway event for those products on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Robie and America Anderson Community Center on McClure Road.
