Thanks to the fine folks at Aaron’s for donating $1,000 worth of soap and hygiene supplies to Clean the World this week.
Your generous donation of soaps, baby shampoos and lotions will be delivered next week to central Florida crisis nurseries and women’s shelters as part of Clean the World’s focus on domestic distribution to children and families in need.
Phil Guadagno, regional manager for Aaron’s stores in the Orlando-area, made the donation May 5 as part of Aaron’s Community Outreach Program (ACORP), which is dedicated to supporting charitable efforts involving children.
“At Aaron’s we love to give back to the communities that support us,” Guadagno says. “We found out about the Clean the World organization online and thought it sounded like a great organization. Our goal is to help Clean the World rid impoverished communities of disease. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that Clean the World is headquartered in Orlando, so we knew we should get involved, however possible, in such a worthy cause.”
Aaron’s is the nation’s leader in the sales and lease ownership of furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and accessories. With more than 1,800 store locations in 48 states and Canada, Aaron’s retail locations could play an important role as a potential drop-off centers for soaps and hygiene supplies, especially in times of crisis, such as we are seeing in the aftermath of the recent tornadoes and storms in Southern states.
“This $1,000 donation of soap and hygiene supplies is just the start,” Guadagno says. “We know we can do so much more, and I’m going to encourage other regional managers to get behind this effort by Clean the World to help stop the spread of disease and promote hand washing with soap.”
