PRESS RELEASE: Clean the World Launches Hygiene Kits for Veterans

Clean the World launches new Veteran Hygiene Kits and a social media contest to honor heroes

ORLANDO, Fla. – (May 18, 2017) – Today, Clean the World, a leader in global health, launches new Veteran Hygiene Kits to improve the lives of our heroes. These life-saving hygiene kits are specialized for veterans and include basic hygiene products as well as important protective items, too.

The kits feature resealable bags, two bars of new soap, bottles of repurposed shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes and toothpaste, razor and shaving cream, comb, socks, deodorant, and inspirational note cards. It’s because of the dedication to country and its people, Clean the World is proud to present its Veteran-themed Hygiene Kit.

“Many of our veterans lack the basic hygiene amenities needed to keep them safe and healthy. It is our duty to support these veterans,” said Shawn Seipler, Founder and CEO for Clean the World. “Putting these specialized kits in the hands of our veterans is a great way to honor and thank them for their service.”

There is an indefinite need for veterans to receive these necessary hygiene products. According to The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night. Unfortunately, the extreme shortage of everyday essentials, such as soap, leaves these veterans at risk for health-related diseases. Clean the World’s Hygiene Kits are meant to prevent such diseases, lift their spirits, and ease the burden of homelessness.

In honor of the Veteran Hygiene Kit release, Clean the World is hosting a social media photo contest. The first-place winner will receive 100 Veteran Hygiene Kits to donate to a local charity of their choice. The photo contest will begin on May 22, 2017 and run until May 31, 2017. For more information on the contest and how to get involved, visit Clean the World’s social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
