NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An organization that helps thousands of people in need is asking for the community's support as they work to stock their shelves.

The Together We Can Make a Difference Initiative is gathering personal hygiene items, like shampoo and toothpaste. They run completely off donations, and could use some help.

Families in need can come by the office in Napoleon every two weeks to pick up basic items. Organizers say the service is extremely beneficial to people in the community because, for some, it's the only place they can go for personal care items.

"They come in and they never thought they'd be in this situation," said Executive Director Kelli Burkhardt. "We keep telling them, ‘It's okay.' The economy is getting better and jobs are coming and we just want people to be ready for that time."

The organization also helps people get their GEDs.
