The Dalles While home baking and similar expressions of gratitude are on the no-no list, firefighters working the Government Flats Fire Complex could use some toiletries and other items that may be running low at base camp.
Kim Nosenzo, a member of Gateway Presbyterian Church, has learned from fire officials that items including socks, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, chapstick and foot powder would be welcome contributions to their efforts.
But don't take them to base camp, Nosenzo said, which is busy enough already.
Instead, a donation box has been set up in the lobby at Gateway Presbyterian.
For more information, call Nosenzo at 541-980-3352.
