Local youth collecting donations for homeless, animal shelter

Recently, Rachel (17 years old) and Bridget Unger (10 years old) started a donation program called Comforting Comforters.    They have only a few more weeks to collect donations in the area for the homeless of Darke County and for local animal rescues and the Animal Shelter.  So far, almost 50 blankets and almost 100 socks were delivered to CAP this week, and several dog toys and treats were delivered to the animal shelter.

The businesses listed in this FB post on their page stepped up to host boxes to collect donations.  Is there any way this can be covered so that they can get more donations to help more people?  Their Facebook page is here:

"Hello, all you wonderful people!

We have 12 boxes in place at 13 businesses throughout Greenville. Here is the breakdown.
