Earlier this month Clean the World helped foster a spirit of patriotism and volunteerism by honoring the memory of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on United States soil. The Orlando facility welcomed a variety of soap recycling volunteers – hotel partners, school groups, church groups and individuals — for a few days of concentrated community service.
The dedicated volunteers worked hard to remove surface debris and help recycle as many soap bars as possible in an effort to sanitize 9,110 bars of soap to mark the 10th anniversary of that horrific event. The ambitious volunteers exceeded that goal. They recycled an estimated 10,000 soap bars by Sept. 11.
“Our volunteers were united in their focus and determined to meet that goal,” says Rosanna Kingston, volunteer coordinator at Clean the World. “It’s a positive, uplifting way to mark a somber anniversary, and it gives us hope in our battle against the spread of diseases worldwide.”
Clean the World joins with others around the United States and our world in memoriam of this painful date in our collective history. It is the hope of our organization that a healthy volunteer spirit and a desire to stop the spread of preventable diseases will unite us in a global hygiene revolution that saves lives all around the world.
