The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay is accepting donated items all week on behalf of Bulls WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who plans to distribute them to the homeless in the bay area on Christmas Day.

Valdes-Scantling announced last week he'll distribute duffel bags filled with clothes, toiletries, bottled water, etc. Anyone wishing to donate such items can bring them to the Boys & Girls Clubs headquarters at 1307 N MacDill Ave. in Tampa between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday-Friday.

Valdes-Scantling, a Lakewood High alumnus, plays his final collegiate game Saturday in the Birmingham Bowl. He has said he hopes to open a local homeless shelter in the future.
