WHO:

  Families, individuals and first responders in need of personal care items, cleaning products or laundry services in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.
 

WHAT:

Tide Loads of Hope has been deployed to support the relief and recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. The mobile laundry vehicle will begin laundry services on October 13th, providing free full-service laundry to residents affected by the recent flooding. Residents can bring clothes (up to two loads per household) to be washed, dried and folded free of charge for those in the directly affected areas. All washable clothing types can be accepted with the exception of heavy bedding. In addition, P&G will also be providing personal care kits containing items such as Secret deodorant, Crest toothpaste and Pantene shampoo as well as household cleaning products like Bounty, Mr. Clean and Swiffer. Currently, the mobile unit and relief support is located at the Walmart parking lot at 5070 Fayetteville Rd.

WHY:

Hurricane Matthew has devastated thousands of homes and businesses and is currently responsible for taking the lives of 39 people in the U.S. and 1,027 people globally in total in its wake. Many more residents have been forced from their homes and are currently without basic needs and resources. P&G has a history of giving back to the communities where we live and work, and we wanted to provide some everyday essentials to those who need it most. These services are free and available to people affected by the disaster and the volunteers that are helping to respond.
