Join Rio’s PTK Team to Help Neighbors in Need

Rio Salado’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) chapter is partnering with the Andre House of Arizona to host a donation drive for people in need, April 30–May 19.

Among the top priorities is collecting reusable (hard plastic) water bottles, which are more sustainable than recyclable water bottles, and also offer storage for leftover food or vitamins.

Other items being collected:
  • Washcloths
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Deodorant 
  • Sunscreen
  • Lip balm
  • Razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Shampoo and conditioner (travel size and large size)
  • Lotion (travel size, unscented or mildly scented)
  • Body wash/soap
  • Toothpaste (travel size)
  • Toothbrushes
  • Q-tips
  • Multi-vitamins, cough drops, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc.
  • Band-aids
  • Combs and hairbrushes
  • Sunglasses
  • Ziplock freezer/storage bags (gallon size)
  • Shoes, work boots, sneakers, sandals (gently used, no high heels)
  • Men’s and women’s clothing and undergarments 

Donation bins are located at the Rio Salado Tempe Tower lobby and near the rear entrance of the Rio Salado Tempe Hohokam building.

For more information, please contact
