The Global Soap Project (http://www.globalsoap.org/) recovers and recycles discarded soap from American hotels with a process where it is sanitized and remolded into new bars that are distributed to vulnerable populations including orphans, disaster victims, prisoners and refugees.
In behalf of NetIP Atlanta, we are inviting you all to come out and help give back to the community! So come out and join us for the Global SOAP project and help make a difference!
Please note the following:
THERE IS LIMITED SPACE FOR VOLUNTEERS SO CONFIRM FAST. THE FIRST 18 WILL BE COUNTED IN :) Please sign up on the Google Doc.
For questions or concerns please contact:
Volunteers are needed to:
• Sort the soap donations from hotels and take inventory
• Inspect and clean the previously used soap; get rid of any bad soap
• Cut bars of soap from the reprocessed soap created by the machine
• Put soap in boxes and move boxes to storage area of warehouse
• Break down and set up boxes as needed
• Help keep the warehouse neat and tidy
Requirements: Volunteers must sign a waiver to participate. This project may involve some heavy lifting and/or using a blade for cutting soap (only those 18 and over can participate in cutting soap).
NOTE: Make sure you wear clothing that can get dirty and closed-toe shoes.
Also, please do not bring donations of soap.
We will grab lunch and drinks after the event.
