·    Canned prepared meals (chili, ravioli)
·    Boxed cereal
·    Canned meat (tuna, chicken)
·    Canned beans
·    Canned Fruit

     Toiletries needed:
·    Diapers
·    Baby Food
·    Laundry Soap
·    Paper Towels
·    Toilet Paper
·    Soap
·    Shampoo
·    Disposable Razors

Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at Vista del Camino, 7700 E. Roosevelt St. Monetary donations can be made to Concerned Citizens for Community Health (CCCH), and mailed toVista’s address or made online at www.concernedcitizensscottsdale.org.
