 This month I thought it would be nice to concentrate on ladies’ personal needs. This includes: hair brushes, combs, tampons, pads, body lotions, bandages, hair dryers, all hair products, etc. Anything you think of that might be appreciated would be great. Note: Haven does not accept travel size items. Full size products only please. Thank you for your generosity.
