THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  Hands on Thomas County needs your help collecting items to create care packages for families in need. 

This is the third year they've had Volunteer week, which leads up to the Rose Show this weekend.

They're asking for people  to donate new travel size items that will be given to families displaced from their homes due to an emergency.

Every 10 items donated equals one hour of community service for students.  

HOTC Executive Director Angela Kiminas said, “HOTC Volunteer Week is a celebration of service and volunteers.  It's a way for us to say thank you, and it's a way for people to go out and volunteer in places that they might not normally.”

Items can be dropped off at their office at 312 North Broad Street. 

They're asking for items such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, washcloths, combs and disposable razors.
