Helping neighbors in need

Clean the World gets an abundance of publicity for our outreach efforts around the world, but closer to home there is a need as well. Especially in central Florida, well under the radar, Clean the World has distributed soap to children and families in communities where foreclosure, homelessness and a limping economy have claimed many victims.

“There will always be a demand for soaps, even in so-called good times,” says William Lowry, director of global distribution for Clean the World.

In the past few months Clean the World has stepped-up domestic distribution by donating nearly 17,000 bars of soap and hygiene products to a variety of organizations:

  • Homeless Services Network of Central Florida (1,000 bars)
  • Opportunity House (900 bars)
  • Seafarer’s House (3,000 bars)
  • Open Homes (1,000 bars)
  • Living in Faith Ministries (1,000 bars)
  • Fresh Start Ministries (3,000 bars)
  • Central Care Mission (6,000 bars)
  • Recovery House of Sanford (200 bars)
  • Celebration High School (550 bars)


“Often the needs of people in our own neighborhood get overlooked in favor of larger causes that command more media attention,” Lowry says. “We’re trying to do what we can where we can with the resources we have available. But we can always use more help and donations.”

If you know of a community or organization in need of soaps and hygiene supplies, please contact us at info@cleantheworld.org. If you’d like to make a financial donation to help pay for more domestic distribution to people in need, visit the donation link here.
