Our program does 2 things:
-In 2019 we diverted over 115,000 lbs of plastic bottles and bars of soap from entering our landfills!
– All of these diverted hygiene products were donated back to our community to local shelters, community outreach programs, schools, seniors and families – at NO COST to the Community Facility
This would not be possible without the valuable contributions of our volunteers.Bins of product continually come into the warehouse. The bins of products are sorted, product cleaned, bottles topped up and packed. The result is products that are full, clean and look new.
Typical processes in the Soap for Hope warehouse includes:
-Sorting product received from hotels
-Standing up bottles to determine quantity of product
-Squeezing, draining or scraping out product to refill other bottles ( plastic is recycled)
-Topping up bottles or tubes with syringes, or a squeeze bottle
– Cleaning bars of soap by scraping
-Assembling 5 piece hygiene kits (soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion).
This is a very labor intensive program. We rely on our volunteers to do this work. Each product leaves our warehouse looking new. We believe in giving good quality products to the Community Facilities.
