October 15 is Global Handwashing Day, a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.
To commemorate this important day, Bath & Body Works associate volunteers partnered with the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County to distribute over 15,000 hand soaps to local nonprofit organizations. The donations aim to make proper handwashing more accessible and combat hygiene poverty in central Ohio.
Located in Columbus, Ohio, the Human Service Chamber supports over 190 health and human services nonprofit organizations in the central Ohio area. The hand soap donations in honor of Global Handwashing Day will go to serve Lower Lights Christian Health Center, PrimaryOne Health, Heart of Ohio Family Health, Faith Mission, Maryhaven and Boundless Health.
