AAA Washington has kicked off its seventh annual Soap for Hope donation drive to collect toiletry items for area shelters, food banks and other charitable organizations across Washington and northern Idaho.
The drive runs through Dec. 31 and donations will be accepted in Kennewick.
With the help of local businesses, community partners and members, AAA Washington has collected nearly 500,000 toiletry items in the past six years, and distributed more than 8,700 pounds of donations last year alone.
Donations of new, full- and sample-size toiletry items such as conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes are accepted at all AAA offices in Washington and northern Idaho.
Drop donations at the Tri-City AAA at 6501 W. Grandridge Blvd., Suite G in Kennewick.
