DOWNEY - The Woman's Club of Downey is collecting non-perishable items - such as toothbrushes and toothpaste - to donate to PTA HELPS, the school district help center that provides temporary emergency aid to Downey students and their families."The month of November is for giving thanks and we want to show those that are having a difficult time in our community how very much we care," the Woman's Club board said in a statement. "We are all so blessed. We have food in our pantry, electricity, etc. It is a fact that there are many in our own community that are struggling for the necessities of life. So, please - let us all make this November the most generous of any year." The club is also accepting restaurant gift cards. To make a donation or schedule a pick-up, call Marie at (562) 884-5799.
