Goal is to collect 5,000 items to aid domestic violence and assault victims
Cincinnati, OH – June 15, 2005 – Hometown dry cleaner Appearance Plus knows that a “little bit can go a long way,” especially when it comes to helping those in need, and is asking for donations of trial size personal care items at each of their Greater Cincinnati stores this summer.
These items will be used in the assembly of kits which are distributed to victims of domestic violence and assault by the Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati to area hospitals, local YWCA shelters and women’s crisis centers throughout Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Clermont County. The specific personal care items needed include: trial size shampoo; conditioner; lotion; bar soap; individual packages of tissues; anti-perspirant; toothpaste; mouthwash; and miniature combs.
Last year, Appearance Plus collected 3,000 trial size personal care items for this outreach project. For their efforts and generous customers, Appearance Plus received the STAR Award from the Assistance League. Appearance Plus’ goal for its second year of involvement with the Assistance League is to collect 5,000 items.
“Our customers have amazed us with their generosity during this project. I think it really shows how much many local residents care about the well- being of their neighbors,” said Jon Lindy, CEO of Appearance Plus.
Appearance Plus will be accepting donations at its three stores in Anderson, Downtown and Hyde Park. Donations will be accepted until Sept. 8, 2005 when the kits will be fully assembled before distribution.
