As a charitable outreach component to â13,â we will collect non-perishable donations to benefit

The "wish list" items include small denomination gas cards, Metro cards, gift cards for groceries (amounts as small as $5, $10, perhaps up to $25); diapers; baby wipes; paper products (toilet paper, plates, towels); toiletries (shampoo, conditioner (including conditioners and other African American hair products), toothbrushes) and hats, scarves, and gloves.
