United Way and Peace Center hold 'Come From Away' personal care item drive

The Peace Center has partnered with United Way of Greenville County to collect personal care items leading up to and during the week-long run of Come From Away, which tells the true story of a small town that welcomed the world in the days following 9/11.

United Way will package the items into hygiene kits to distribute to their partner agencies in the community. Suggested items include toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant, sample size laundry detergent, soap, wash cloth, comb, Band-Aids and antiseptic ointment/cream. Items should be new and travel/sample sizes are preferred.

Items can be dropped off now through April 21 at the Peace Center box office, which is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and 90 minutes before performances.

Come From Away plays the Peace Center April 16-21 as part of the 2018-2019 Broadway season.
