Enjoyed some good clean fun helping out at the Soap for Hope (a program of Disaster Aid Canada) warehouse today. The non-profit program is part of Disaster Aid Canada and helps to provide humanitarian aid, shelter, sustainable water systems and hygiene products to people both globally as well as those at local shelters here on the island. I was joined by my Island Savings a division of First West Credit Union co-workers Ilka Bene and Michelle Lancaster and the Soap for Hope staff & friendly team of volunteers showed us how to reprocess and repackage shampoos, conditioners, body washes and bars of soap that they collect from the public and local hotels. It took a little time to master the soap syringe and things sometimes got a little messy with the strong smell of rose and lavender but all in all it was a great experience. Would definitely recommend this volunteer opportunity to others. The time really went fast and was really just a great social outing. Best part of the experience though is knowing that our small time given will help to make a difference in our world. It really is quite amazing to see the thousands of plastic bottles and items that fill their warehouse and know that through their efforts these items will be diverted from our local landfills and also help people in our communities as well as overseas stay healthy.
