Clean the World has experienced a surge in soap donations from schools, churches, civic organizations, and individuals interested in providing better hygiene opportunities for families in the United States and foreign countries.
“People are often amazed at how simple it is to organize a community soap drive, but when they do get one started, it can be so rewarding,” Mosley says. “Each day we receive phone calls and emails from wonderful people who just want to do something to help, and a soap drive is a tangible way for families and organizations to rally in favor of improved health and hygiene.”
Hospital workers, Boys and Girls Scout troops, college sororities, corporations and women’s ministry groups are just some of the recent contributors of new soaps to Clean the World.
Even hotel workers are getting into the act. Recently, The InterContinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel organized a soap drive among its employees, which resulted in 600 lbs. of soaps being donated to Clean the World.
“What a remarkable soap drive,” Mosley said. “And they weren’t even hotel soaps. These were soaps purchased and donated by employees for the benefit of children and famillies around the world. I think that makes it extra special.”
