WHO:

 

Families, individuals and first responders in need of personal
care items, cleaning products or laundry services in the wake of
the Nebraska flooding.

 

WHAT:

Two Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Laundry Units have been deployed to
support relief and recovery efforts in the wake of the devastating
flooding in Nebraska. The Tide Loads of Hope mobile laundry
vehicles will begin services in Fremont and Bellevue on Saturday,
March 23, providing free full-service laundry services to
residents affected by the recent flooding. Residents can bring
clothes (up to two loads per household) to be washed, dried and
folded free of charge for those directly impacted by the flooding.
All washable clothing types can be accepted with the exception of
heavy bedding.

 
P&G will also distribute free personal care and cleaning kits with
everyday essentials to those in affected neighborhoods and areas.
 

WHY:

The flooding in the Midwest has destroyed an extraordinary amount
of homes and businesses. The area has seen devastating effects of
the flooding, with three lives lost to-date and more than 2,000
homes and businesses destroyed.

 
P&G has a history of giving back to the communities where we live
and work, and we want to provide everyday essentials to those who
need it most to help bring a sense of normalcy in this time of need.
These services are free and available to people affected by the
disaster and the volunteers who are helping to respond.

Starting on Saturday, March 23, the team will collect laundry from
9:00 AM-5:00 PM CT in Fremont and Bellevue or until a collective
