It’s time for the annual MANUAL VERSUS MALE COLLECTION CHALLENGE! We are collecting toiletries for USPIRITUS Children’s Home. They serve abused and neglected youth in Kentucky, with residential psychiatric care, therapeutic foster care, community based services & more.

Children entering the residential program need all full size personal care items, including new face and body towels.

The competition is going on now until game day, Friday, November 1st. Please send in or drop off donations and place in specially marked boxes and CAP bins located at most school entrances, as well as YPAS and Annex lobbies.
