The Cedar Grove High School cluster, comprised of Cedar Grove High, Cedar Grove Middle, Cedar Grove Elementary and Oak View Elementary, is collecting toiletries for the poor.
The schools are accepting donations of soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, combs and brushes that will be placed in shoeboxes to distribute to the needy.
Volunteers will host a Shoebox Social on April 12, from 4 to 7 p.m., where they will pack shoeboxes filled with the donated items.
The cluster hopes to surpass last year’s collection of 500 shoeboxes.
DCSD invites community stakeholders to join Cedar Grove’s efforts to help those in need in DeKalb County.
