Donations needed for elderly in shelter

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Some elderly men and women taking shelter at John I. Leonard High School are in need of donations.

The Palm Beach County School District Police Department said several elderly people who have never stayed in a shelter did not know what items were needed.

Many left their homes with just the clothes on their back and maybe an extra set of clothes to wear, officials said.

The items in need are:

  • Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Sleeping bags

Anyone who can donate these items is asked to drop them off at 4701 10th Ave N. in Greenacres Saturday morning.
