Refine & Simply Charmed in downtown Hays have teamed up with the USD 489 Foundation to bring some comfort to USD 489 families this fall with the Hope Pantry Food Drive now through Aug. 17.

Donate 10 or more items to either Refine or Simply Charmed and receive a $15 gift card to be used in both stores. The USD 489 Foundation will match the total number of items donated.

The Hope Pantry serves children discreetly in need of essential items and provides support for families within the school district.

Top needed items include nonperishable food items, especially canned meats, canned fruit, mac and cheese, ramen noodles and soups.

Hygiene products include shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, and body wash or soap.
