St. Petersburg Free Clinic runs out of hygiene products, asks for donations

The St. Petersburg Free Clinic says it has run out of hygiene items.

The clinic posted a photo of empty bins to Facebook Tuesday with a plea for donations.

"We need your help! Our hygiene shelves are empty. We are in need of body soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo and conditioner," the post says. "Pick some up at the store, bring it into the Free Clinic or purchase it from our Amazon Wishlist and it will be sent directly to us. Or do you travel a lot? We accept hotel toiletries."

The clinic's Amazon Wishlist can be found at http://a.co/4Ct501i, and the clinic is located at 863 3rd Ave. N.

The centers offers free medical services for low-income people who are uninsured, as well as a food bank. The nonprofit provided 13,000 services last year, ranging from wellness screenings to more specialized care.
