4. Tissues and Toilet Paper; 
5. Low Sodium, low sugar canned fruit and vegetables; 
6. Laundry detergent; 
7. Cereal/Oatmeal; and 
8. Diapers.

The Rotary Clubs leading this effort are the B-CCMetro Bethesda, and North Bethesda Clubs. 

Community members are also invited to participate in this drive by dropping off any of these items at the B-CC Regional Services Center before September 27.
