Extra information
Soap for Hope Canada (SfHC) expands access to good hygiene through the redistribution of repurposed hygiene products (soap bars, shampoo bottles, etc.) and retired products (linens, robes, slippers) sourced from more than 90 hotel partners. Staff and volunteers reprocess these products for re-use in Community Facilities . SfHC is significantly extending the use of hygiene products through redistribution that reduces the volumes of these products that would otherwise end up in landfill sites.

Stories of our community involvement
In under a week, our volunteers were able to put together 500 Family Hygiene Kits (each kit had 14 family sized items) for Women and Children coming to Vancouver from Ukraine. United Way of the Lower Mainland called and we!
We were only able to do this because our donors have been so generous in dropping off hygiene product and funds. By doing this it allows us to be ready. A big thank you to TELUS Friendly Future Foundation for your donation. This allows us to concentrate on getting the job done!
We also could not do our work without the support of Diamond Delivery and First Canadian Messenger. They acted quickly, came to pick up the 5 pallets of products and got it to Vancouver in record time.
When we all work together, amazing things happen.
Thank you for the continued support, we are shipping product each week to help Ukrainians! This week, some of our products will go on a container shipment to Poland!

Second Hand Hope, a Social Enterprise of Soap for Hope Canada, is helping Soap for Hope Canada collect hygiene items and basic First Aid supplies to send in a 40ft container to the Polish-Ukraine border. These supplies will be used in a field hospital and registration center for new arrivals.

Second Hand Hope is assisting Soap for Hope Canada by collecting hygiene products that will go in the container. The Thrift Store will be open on Saturday March 5th from 10am – 2 pm to accept product donations. Second Hand Hope is at 444 William Street.

Products must be NEW as we do not have the manpower to sort through used items. We have been asked to supply Baby Items (diapers, diaper cream, baby shampoo, baby lotion), Body Lotion, Bars of wrapped Soap, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Combs, Brushes, Face clothes, Towels and Feminine Products. Basic First Aid items are also required and will be greatly appreciated.

“There is huge worry and anxiety over this crisis, Second Hand Hope wants to help and is offering a $5 discount at their store for each donation brought into the Thrift Store on Saturday, (tax receipts for any financial donations will be issued by Soap for Hope Canada).

Second Hand Hope encourages each person watching these atrocities to do one thing to help...bring in a bar of soap, a box of band aides or anything from our list of needed supplies to show someone from the Ukraine that we are thinking of them and we care.
A huge shout out to elate cosmetics who donated thousands of dollars worth of cosmetics to Soap for Hope Canada. We know the women that receive these will be elated and know that someone is thinking of them! What a treat.

We are well into week two of our annual Make a Difference Days campaign where our employees are out in full force giving back to our local communities and we are loving every minute of it! The last two weeks staff have assisted various non-profit organizations such as Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada),Cowichan Valley Basket Society, Chemainus Harvest House, Lake Cowichan Food Bank, Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes, LifeCycles Project Society, Cowichan Sportsplex, The Big Shop of Horrors and the Malahat Legion. These smiling faces were two of the many staff who made a difference in our communities and had a blast while doing so!

We are looking forward to the following weeks getting involved with more of these incredible organizations!
Had a great day volunteering Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada) in Victoria !

Please consider volunteering here: it's a direct connection between those of us who have the luxury to travel, and those for whom soap is a luxury. Plus, it's #goodcleanfun !

On #WorldMentalHealthDay they say to:
- get active ✔️
- keep in touch ✔️
- care for others ✔️
#Volunteering checks all these boxes and so much more!

Did you know that employees at First West and its Divisions can use up to 3 paid days to volunteer in the community? I had the pleasure of bringing several friends along to Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada)) for a fun day of #goodcleanfun

Thanks to my generous colleagues, I was able to bring a boxful of toiletries, soaps etc to Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada) last night at their volunteer night. Program Coordinator Bryce and ED Anne and Kathy (volunteer leader extraordinaire) kept everyone busy, engaged and grooving to the tunes as we squeezed soaps and built hygiene kits for our local shelters. Definitely #goodcleanfun !
So great to volunteer at Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada) yesterday with colleagues #Suzanne van Assum and Lori Banner. In addition to putting the squeeze on some soap, we created hundreds of hygiene packs for people in our communities.
This is a great place to volunteer - we were productive, engaged, and left feeling (and smelling) great!
