One of the problems that still plagues our society is Domestic Violence, which unfortunately remains the leading cause of injury to women. Some of these maltreated women find refuge in shelters that provide them with a roof for the night and a safe haven for their kids.
Since domestic violence is by nature unexpected and vicious, these women don’t have the time to prepare, and they are forced to retreat to these shelters without their possessions. Their safety and the safety of their children is the number-one priority so it is easy to understand how most of them have nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Those lucky few get the chance to grab some personal items but these are the exceptions and the shelters struggle to compensate their lacking.
Scarcity is preventing them from supplying residents with even basic items, and this only makes matters worse for battered women. YesterYear Soap Company is one of the retailers of premium soap that tries to give something back to the community and help those in need. Their commitment to easing the anguish of women who have been the victims of domestic violence goes beyond words of encouragement.
YesterYear Soap Products are appreciated by customers nationwide, but for these women having a bar of soap means even more. During a production cycle, there are always more bars of soap created than planned, and these extra items are of the same quality as those that end up on a shop’s shelves. Instead of throwing these soaps away, they choose to donate it to women’s shelters and hope their residents enjoy better living conditions. Cindy O’Neill’s statement on the YesterYear Soap Charitable Giving places the emphasis on the importance of making this kind of donations. Regular people and business owners can make a difference as these shelters can use quality personal care items.
