The C.O.D.E.S.(community, outreach, dedication, education and success) group at Wilton High School is hosting its annual toiletries drive to benefit residents at the Open Door Shelter in Norwalk.

Starting this week (February 29) through March 31 the CODES high school group, sponsored by Wilton Youth Council, will be collecting hotel/travel size toiletry items:  shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, toothbrushes, and toothpaste (no mouthwash please). The shelter can also always use new socks and undergarments. Organizers say, “With a little effort, we can make a tremendous difference by just providing some simple everyday items that we take for granted.”

Drop off locations are at Wilton High School, Trackside and the Wilton Family YMCA.

For questions or to make a donation please email Rachael Sandler, C.O.D.E.S. advisor.
