As part of our Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, Bedford Embraces Diversity is holding a personal care item drive to support the Middlesex Community College Food Pantry. The MCC Food Pantry has seen a greater than ever need from students and staff this year, so any donations would be incredibly beneficial for their campus community.

Items on this list include:

  • deodorant
  • body wash
  • face wash
  • dish soap
  • tissues
  • feminine hygiene products
