Federal Way Community Caregiving Network to receive donations from Soap for Hope

Residents can contribute to campaign through end of the year

AAA Washington is teaming up with the Community Caregiving Network in Federal Way to provide fresh opportunities for neighbors in need. This year marks the 10th anniversary of AAA Washington’s annual Soap for Hope donation drive, which collects unused travel and full-size toiletry items for shelters, food banks and other charitable organizations in the community where they are donated. AAA’s Federal Way store, 2122 S. 314th St., has chosen the Community Caregiving Network to be the recipient of their donations. Donations can be made at any AAA store across Washington and northern Idaho now through the end of the year.

Because of the generosity of members, the public, local businesses and community partners, AAA Washington has collected more than 850,000 toiletry items for local charities over the past nine years. AAA hopes to reach a milestone of 1 million donations this year.

To help make a difference in the Federal Way local community, residents are asked to scan bathroom cabinets and gather unused toiletries from a previous vacation, freebies from the dentist office or extra items from a bulk warehouse purchase. Donations of new, full- and sample-size toiletry items, such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste and toothbrushes, are accepted at all AAA stores in Washington and northern Idaho.
