The Tehachapi Salvation Army received 517 hygiene kits Saturday, Jan. 26.

The hygiene kits will be distributed to disaster victims and homeless in the Tehachapi area.

A big thank you to the community, Dr. Michael Jones, DDS, Old Towne Dental, Dr. Veronica Walch, Village Square Dental, and Walmart on Rosedale Highway in Bakersfield for making this project a success.

Without the community support, we could not have achieved our goal. For future volunteer opportunities, please go to

Linda Brunner is a volunteer for the donation drive.
