Soap for Hope, based in Victoria, BC, started as a small project to help provide hygiene products to local shelters, but has since developed into a program that helps over 170 Community Facilities and 70 Indigenous Nations in BC and AB.
Executive Director, Anne McIntyre, had the vision to divert soap and hygiene products from landfill and give them to vulnerable communities who have the greatest need. This need has only been amplified during the pandemic, and through the incredible efforts of a team of volunteers, donations from communities continue to be a driving force for good.
If you have items that can help this great cause, you can let us know and we can co-ordinate a pick up or a soap drive!

We are so proud to have recently celebrated the 7-year anniversary of our partnership with Rain or Shine.We recognize commitment to sustainability by only using compostable service items as well and sourcing ingredients locally, as well as the positive impact their volunteering and campaigning efforts have on the local community.
