ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The YMCA will be soon wrapping up their hygiene drive. 

Monday, September 21 is the last day to drop off products for donation.

Soap, deodorant, and shampoo are among the many toiletries to be collected. Donations may be dropped off at the YMCA or any of the U Save It Pharmacies in Albany. 

Organizers say they've had a good response, but could use more things for young people.

"We do need more things for children and babies. Like diapers and wipes, baby lotions and soaps," said Erin Hutchinson. "And so that's one of the things we really do need."  

All the donations will go to different non-profit organizations around Albany.
