ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  While many people are focused on helping earthquake victims in Haiti, an effort continues to increase support for the Salvation Army in Albany.

Last week, the Sleep Inn started Project Hygiene. So far they've collected several bags of hygiene products. Several organizations including the Girl Scouts and Medical Associates pledged support.

They're relying on word of mouth to get other groups involved.

"Anything anybody can help with, any kind of donation if they have collections like this, sitting at home from all the other hotels any hotels in the world come on out and bring it out they will be able to use it, personal hygiene items are very, very necessary right now," said Jaye Lomax, the Director of Sales at the Sleep Inn.

The Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau are now drop off locations for supplies.

While food and clothes have been donated, organizers hygiene products in personal size bottles are needed most at the shelter.
