One Dawsonville teen recently thought of a unique way to gather items for those in need. As part of a Beta Club project, ninth grader J.D. Cook has teamed up with local eatery Ruby’s Recipes to collect toiletries for The Place of Dawson and Forsyth counties. People are requested to bring in donations of the following: -Baby or adult diapers -Sanitizing wipes (Clorox, Lysol, etc.) -Shampoo -Bar soap -Toothpaste -Toothbrushes (single pack) -Dental floss -Deodorant -Laundry detergent (liquid or pods) -Toilet paper There is a box that can be filled at Ruby’s as well as take-home bags so people can go and bring back requested items to the restaurant before J.D. 's collection deadline the afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 12. He and others will gather and sort donations next week at school before getting them to The Place.
