An eight-day donation drive to benefit nursing homes in the community will kick off this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week activities at Auburn University.
The annual celebration week Jan. 18-22 will be preceded by a nursing home drive co-sponsored by Auburn’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity (OID) and the Auburn Student Nurses Association. The drive is Jan. 12-20 and organizers are asking for donations of travel-size toiletries for area nursing home residents.
Acceptable items include hand sanitizer, soap and body wash, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, flushable wipes, floss, shampoo, conditioner and lip balm. Items will be collected at the Cross Cultural Center for Excellence in Suite 2104 of the Melton Student Center. On Friday, Jan. 22, volunteers wearing masks and practicing social distancing can participate in the Nursing Home Drive Packing Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Suite 2104.
