HISTORY:

P&G has a long history of responding to natural disasters. Seven years ago, we launched Tide Loads of Hope, to provide much needed free laundry services to families affected by Hurricane Katrina. Today, the program includes the Tide Loads of Hope truck outfitted with 32 energy-efficient Frigidaire ® Affinity washers and dryers. Collectively, Tide has washed over 49,000 loads of laundry for more than 35,000 families impacted by disasters since the program launched. Duracell brings its reliable power to communities affected by disasters through the Duracell Power Relief program. Trailers, trucks and stationary units allow victims of natural disasters to recharge, reconnect and recover by providing the power they need to stay safe and connected with what’s most important to them. As part of our overall effort to touch and improve lives in the wake of disasters, the P&G Mobile Relief Unit provides mobile bathroom and shower facilities so that people can shower and take care of other personal needs. We also offer kits that contain essential personal care items like Ivory bar soap, Pantene shampoo and Gillette razors in an effort to help restore a sense of normalcy.
