Airport Confiscations Go to Needy
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Here's another destination for all your stuff that got confiscated at the airport. We told you this week that Pennsylvania sells items on eBay. In Oregon, they're giving it away. Since last week's terror alert, an Oregon charity has been digging through trash bags full of all those discarded liquids. Homeless families suddenly have a surplus of shampoo, shaving cream and toothpaste. The charity has not passed on confiscated brandy or a container of body butter. It's MORNING EDITION.
