LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — For the third year.. the Lafayette Police Department is partnering with Trinity Life Mission to provide basic needs for recovering substance abusers.


LPD is asking people to donate personal hygiene products for men living at the mission. You can donate soap, shaving cream, toothpaste or anything similar at L-P-D headquarters starting july first.

Sergeant Matt Gard said most of the time residents come to the program with nothing but the shirt on their backs. He said these items are crucial in the year-long recovery program.

"These men are very appreciative of this. Just having those basic needs met in their lives, it's one less thing they have to worry about," Gard said, "If we can make a person in the community that was suffering with substance abuse or substance dependancy get back on their feet, it helps out the entire community. Not only does the LPD benefit, the community benefits and, most importantly, that person and their family benefits."

The donation drive begins July first and goes until the end of the month. You can donate items at the Lafayette Police Department in Downtown Lafayette.
