The River Bandits will be collecting Personal Protective Equipment and other supplies at a donation drive Saturday, April 11 in a parking lot adjacent to Modern Woodmen Park from 10 am to 3 pm. The items collected will go to health care workers at Genesis Health System.

According to a River Bandits news release, a large bin will be put in place under a portable red tent in the northwest corner of the Florian Keen Parking Lot north of Modern Woodmen Park at its entrance at River Drive and Western Avenue where people are encouraged to place donated items in a trash bag and then gently place them in the bin.

Items especially needed include:

  • Disposable, non-latex gloves (vinyl is preferred)
  • Bleach wipes
  • Anti-microbial hand soap
  • Spools of one-quarter to three-quarter inch elastic of any color
  • Regular protective face masks
