Bradford attends Amenity Aid ribbon-cutting and the grand opening of their new head office
Posted September 2021
On the evening of Thursday, August 26, Amenity Aid held a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of their very first office. After eight years of relying solely on volunteers and their storage facility for the distribution of donations, the non-profit was thrilled to officially open a home office in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Amenity Aid has seen significant growth since its inception in 2013. The non-profit seeks to reduce hygiene poverty in Rhode Island communities by providing donated hygiene and personal care essentials to those in need. This year so far, Amenity Aid has helped over 24,000 people by delivering nearly 38,000 personal hygiene items.
Over the years, Bradford Soap Works has regularly donated hygiene essentials to the charitable organization. Liz Duggan, Founder and Executive Director of Amenity Aid, most recently visited the Bradford facility on August 13. There, she received a whole pallet of donated bar soap, facial cleansers, beard balms, deodorants, and shower poufs for her organization to distribute.
Deb McDonough, VP of Marketing for Bradford, attended the event. “We at Bradford wish Amenity Aid the best of luck in their continued expansion and new offices. Their mission to eliminate hygiene poverty in Rhode Island is vitally important, and we are proud to help support them.
