The USC Upstate College Democrats and Republicans are having a competition to see who can do the most to help those in need in Spartanburg. 

Here is how it works.  Beginning on Tuesday, you will see red (for Republican) and blue (for Democrat) boxes around campus.  We are using these boxes to collect commonly used items for the Haven (a shelter near Downtown).  Here are some examples of what we are looking for:

Bar soap
Shampoo (if you have some hotel size shampoo that you "borrowed" this is a chance to give it to a good cause)
Toothbrushes and toothpaste
Combs, razors, shaving cream and nail files

Basically, we are looking for toiletries and other personal hygiene items.

Once you have gathered your items, just drop them in either a blue or red box.  If your want to deliver a larger quantity of items, or can't find a box, email Trevor Rubenzer at 

Our campaign is only going for one week.  The boxes will be emptied and removed on November 20.
