Beginning Tuesday, Medical Teams International will join a new national movement aided by social media called #GivingTuesday.
For the next three Tuesdays, the group will take donations of hygiene supplies and deliver them to 70 groups serving local people.
Medical Teams International is looking for items including: gallon-size Ziploc bags, hairbrushes, soap, wash cloths, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Donors may drop off items on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the group's headquarters at 14150 SW Milton Court in Tigard.
