Students will be distributing care packages containing personal care items to those in need. Community members are encouraged to donate items for inclusion in the care packages. Suggestions include lip balm, toothbrushes and toothpaste, band-aids or other adhesive bandages, or hand and foot warmers.
Donations can be dropped off at the AIRC or at Shannon's Art and Soul in downtown Bemidji.
