Press Release from AAA

Yakima office to collect donations for Rod’s House

 YAKIMA, Wash. – For some, a little soap can provide an entirely fresh outlook on life. But for others with limited incomes, it’s a daily necessity they cannot afford.

AAA Washington is helping by kicking off their 5th annual Soap for Hope donation drive to collect toiletry items for local shelters, food banks and other charitable organizations. Donations may be dropped off at the Yakima AAA office located at 2301 W. Nob Hill, Suite #1. Donations made at this office will benefit Rod’s House.

Thanks to the generosity of AAA members, local businesses and our local communities, AAA has collected and distributed more than 250,000 toiletry items in the past four years.  These items have been distributed to dozens of charitable organizations throughout Washington and northern Idaho.

“We’re asking our neighbors for help again this year,” said Lorene Lenseigne, manager of AAA’s office in Yakima. “With the economy’s slow recovery, more than ever families in our community need help with basic everyday necessities. The charities we support greatly appreciate these toiletry donations because they are in high demand and cannot be purchased with food stamps.”

Donations of new, full- and sample-size toiletry items such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes will be accepted year-round at all AAA locations.
