Soap for Hope

Give Someone a Fresh Start

The simple act of donating a bar of soap can make a huge impact on another person’s life. Soap for Hope, AAA Washington’s toiletry donation drive, aims to help our neighbors in need.

The Soap for Hope donation drive runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 30, but we accept donations all year. Since 2008, we’ve distributed close to 1,500,000 essential items to local charities throughout Washington and North Idaho.

Hygiene poverty isn’t as visible as hunger, but it’s very real. Many people are unable to afford basic hygiene products that most of us take for granted. We encourage your participation this holiday season.
