The Minnetonka Post Office, along with all post office locations within zip codes beginning in “554,” are collecting basic hygience products through Nov. 1.

Many Duluth area residents have been displaced and are now facing homelessness, according to USPS flier for the collection. The flooding was declared a federal disaster.

The travel or trial size items that are being accepted include:

  • Soap;
  • Shampoo;
  • Conditioner;
  • Toothbrushes;
  • Toothpaste;
  • Deodorant;
  • Shaving cream;
