The recent rash of natural disasters throughout the Southeastern United States has led to increased soap donations to Clean the World. We are doing our part to help turn these generous soap donations into hygiene relief for victims of the storms that have ravaged so many states and communities.
Ron Burth of Venice, Fla., who has previously traveled with Clean the World on soap distribution trips to Haiti, came to Clean the World headquarters in Orlando to fulfill his “next mission.” He filled his truck with more than 800 lbs. of soaps and bottled amenities (shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels) as part of an outreach effort promoted by Northland Church.
“It’s a super group of people who just want to help wherever there is a need,” Burth says.
He left this morning with three volunteers to begin an 11-hour journey to Alabama. The volunteers are bound for Tuscaloosa, where many homes and families were devastated by tornadoes. They will distribute soaps, along with other hygiene, clothing and food supplies donated by outside organizations, over the next several days.
Photos of the soap distribution trip to Alabama will be featured on the Clean the World Facebook page once they are available.
