Clean the World recently distributed more than 800 hygiene kits to homeless individuals at the Christian Service Center in Orlando, Fla.
The hygiene kits contained bars of soap, bottled amenities, and vanity kits provided by hospitality partners participating in the Clean the World program.
The ROI for the event was immediate as the hygiene kits were enthusiastically received by those in attendance.
“Our people often ask for soaps and other hygiene-related items because it’s hard to keep clean on the streets,” says Mary Lynn Walker, director of development and communications at the Christian Service Center. “Keeping your body clean is a basic need, and Clean the World has helped us distribute more than 3,000 hygiene kits this year to homeless individuals, families and students in local schools. We are impressed that Clean the World thinks globally, but also acts locally to help people in need.”
Christian Service Center helped deliver comfort to more than 12,000 homeless families in 2011.
