Chronicle Staff Report

Wake Forest University students delivered 10,276 rolls of toilet paper to Bethesda Center for the Homeless, 930 N. Patterson Ave in Winston-Salem, on Friday.

According to a press release submitted to The Chronicle last week, the original goal was only 2,000 rolls but students rallied throughout the week and collected 10,276 rolls. The toilet paper drive was coordinated by Wake’s Student Government Life Committee co-chair Erica Jordan.

The Bethesda Center is the largest emergency shelter for men and women in Forsyth County.

Toilet paper has been on the top of Bethesda’s community needs list as the Center goes through more than 15 rolls a day for its Emergency Night Shelter and Day Shelter guests.  Now Bethesda is stocked for two years.
