Chris Wolf’s funny, fun, and informative article detailing One Less Worry’s work with the Area Outreach Food Pantry (AIO) in Rockland. “Sharon Hobson loves to buy toilet paper. She loves to have rolls and rolls and rolls of it around, but she doesn’t suffer from acartohygieiophobia, which is the fear of running out. . . . One Less Worry helps provide persons living in homeless or financially insecure situations with fundamental necessities. Toilet paper would qualify as a fundamental necessity.”
