PERRYSBURG, Ohio (WNWO) - The YMCA of greater Toledo is teaming up with Family House this week before we hit those hot summer days. They are filling the Family House bus, outside of the Fort Meigs YMCA Child Development Center, with everyday items for the center.

Things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, cleaning products and hygiene products are what's most in demand this time of year.

It started as an idea of kids helping kids. The YMCA was teaching kids about homelessness.

"It’s a chance to get outside their worlds and understand there are needs out there,” said Cathy Leonard, with the YMCA. “Really plant some seeds for giving and generosity which we like to support in children."

You can fill the bus until Friday. Bus doors are open during business hours.
