Donations to help women's shelters are being accepted throughout October at Paul Smith Library of Southern York County, 80 Constitution Ave., Shrewsbury.

Local shelters for women and families in need can use shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, other toiletries and Walmart gift cards.

Donations are being collected through Nov. 1 at the library, located behind the YMCA and post office. The donations will be delivered to the shelter in early November.
