Soap For Hope

AAA Washington

Give Someone A Fresh Start

Soap for Hope is the annual toiletry donation campaign that provides basic necessities and personal care items to our neighbors in need.

Thanks to the generous help of our members, the community and partnering organizations, AAA Washington collected more than 110,000 personal hygiene items in 2018. In total, we have now redistributed more than one million toiletry donations to local charities throughout Washington and northern Idaho. Thank you for helping us make a difference in our local communities.
