Donations needed

The 2016 Leadership McPherson class is continuing to work with McPherson High School and provide needs for the Bullpup Exchange that the 2016 Leadership class began there. As a reminder, the Bullpup Exchange is a place to benefit every student at MHS. Gently used clothing and unopened personal hygiene items are donated and everything is available, free of charge, to MHS students. This has been a success, which means many of the original items have now run out. Some urgent needs are hats, scarves, gloves, warm socks, deodorant (girls and guys), McPherson clothing, shampoo, body wash and toothpaste. Other clothing, especially hoodies and other hygiene items, are needed as well and will be put to good use. Please drop donations off at the Chamber office, 306 N. Main St.; Hutton Construction, 1401 S. Highway 81 Bypass; or McPherson Healthcare Foundation inside the East entrance to McPherson Hospital, 1000 Hospital Drive.
