Southern Minnesota Nurses is collecting new, unopened underwear to be sent to Texas for use by victims of Hurricane Harvey. Donations will be sent to an organization called Undies for Everyone for distribution. They anticipate that there will be a need and are planning for distribution through the end of the year. All sizes for men, women and children are needed.
Donations will be accepted at meetings and drop-off locations through November 2 at the SMN Nurses Expo. Drop-off locations are to be determined. For more information, contact Pat Shortall at 507-327-6907.
