Helping families in need
Youth in Philanthropy students from Salem High School granted $500 in educational toys and $250 in winter hats, gloves and scarves to this year’s Stuff A Cruiser event which has been changed to a contact-free drop-off event due to COVID-19. People can still donate new toys and clothing by dropping items off at Nina’s Closet, 535 E. State St., in the alley way between Penn and South Lundy Avenue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and again from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 1. The event is co-sponsored by the Salem Police Department, Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office, Quaker Lodge Fraternal Order of Police 88 and Ohio CAN Change Addiction Now Columbiana County, which is headquartered at Nina’s Closet.
