Families, individuals and first responders in need of personal care items, cleaning products or laundry services in the wake of the Ohio tornadoes can thank Proctor & Gamble for bringing help to town.
Two Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Laundry Units have been deployed to support relief and recovery efforts in the wake of the devastating tornadoes in the Dayton and Celina, Ohio areas. The Tide Loads of Hope mobile laundry vehicles will begin services in Dayton and Celina on Friday, May 31, providing free full-service laundry services to residents affected by the recent tornadoes. 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.
In partnership with Matthew 25: Ministries, P&G will also be distributing free personal care and cleaning kits with everyday essentials, providing food, accepting supply donations and coordinating volunteer cleanups at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Dayton.

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.
