MEDIA ADVISORY: PROCTER & GAMBLE BRINGS MOBILE RELIEF TO VICTIMS OF HURRICANE ISAAC WITH NEW P&G RELIEF CENTER, TIDE LOADS OF HOPE, DURACELL RAPID RESPONDER, AND CHARMIN RESTROOMS
Mobile Showers, Restrooms and Personal Care Kits Join Laundry and Power Relief Service, bringing aid to residents affected by Hurricane Isaac
WHO: Services available to all families or individuals in need of showers, restrooms and personal care items as well as laundry and temporary power use in the wake of Hurricane Isaac.
WHAT: Beginning Sunday, September 2nd, the P&G Relief Center will be stationed in LaPlace, Louisiana to provide showers, restroom facilities and personal care kits to victims of Hurricane Isaac. This service will be free to all victims, responders and their families.
The Mobile Relief Center will be joining P&G’s Tide Loads of Hope, which will be at the same location to provide free full service laundry to relief workers and residents, who are encouraged to drop off their laundry to be washed, dried and folded, free of charge. No bedding, jackets, or other large pieces will be accepted. Services will be available Tuesday, September 4th.
The Duracell Rapid Responder – the newest member of Duracell’s Power Forward fleet – arrived on Thursday, and is moving throughout the New Orleans area to provide power relief in the areas of greatest need. At each truck stop, people will have access to charging lockers for mobile devices, computers, WiFi and a battery distribution center to help them reconnect with loved ones and stay powered up when they need it most.
Charmin Restrooms will also be deployed for the first time to aid in the disaster relief and will be in a separate location to provide additional bathrooms and showers for those looking to meet basic needs and freshen up.
WHY: We know that in the wake of a disaster, many of the simple things like clean teeth, clean clothes, a shower and making a phone call to loved ones become difficult. Recent storms have devastated parts of the country and have forced many residents from their homes, leaving them without basic needs and resources. So, in an effort to help restore a sense of normalcy, we are expanding P&G’s Mobile Relief efforts to include mobile units with shower and restroom facilities and Personal Care Kits. Our people and our brands are joining together to help relief workers and families whose homes, clothing and personal items have been impacted and to help renew a sense of hope in a difficult time.
