Toiletries for Hurricane Victims

I wind up with a zillion samples of soap, shampoo, lotion, etc because of the large amount of traveling I do.  I can't resist taking them and normally donate them to a local woman's shelter.  Today I packed up a large box to send off for hurricane victims and thought you might be inspired to do the same ....

I also always take them from Hotels and save them up to give to a local aid shelter. The shelter helps homeless that go there to shower, get clothing and food.

These are items that you paid for so take them and donate them to a shelter. The shelters need it more then the Hilton.

We donate them to a local homeless shelter.

I always take the small sample sized toiletries in hotel rooms or cruise ships. Most of them I give to a local women's shelter through a club that I belong. A few I save to put in a basket for my guests to use when they visit. They are always appreciated. Be sure that the items are not expired or the shelters will not use them.
