PUEBLO — A group in Pueblo is facing a toilet paper problem.

Pueblo Cooperative Care is in the middle of its annual Toilet Paper Challenge, but this year the numbers are low.

The group said as of Thursday it had collected about 2,000 rolls. At this point last year it had around 17,000 rolls.

Cooperative Care said people's coronavirus preparations have likely contributed to the fall in donations.

"Getting toilet paper is part of our hygiene program and you know toilet paper is the common need but it is an uncommon request so when our families come in part of the hygiene is to give them rolls of toilet paper," said Director of Operations Mona Montoya.

The drive ends March 31. If you want to donate contact Pueblo Cooperative Care.
