NHS members decided to collect toiletries, including: soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, feminine hygiene products and laundry detergent to assist with many needs for several Oswego families.

More than 300 items were collected.

This is the third year the student group has completed this project, which has grown each year.

The event exemplifies service, which is one of the main NHS pillars.
