Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington Square Portland-Tigard & two other Embassy Suites locally to Create Nearly 1,200 Hygiene Kits to Commemorate Hilton’s Global Week of Service
Embassy Suites by Hilton Team Members Join Forces with Clean the World to Produce Kits for Local Communities across North America
PORTLAND, Ore. - Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington Square Portland-Tigard, Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Airport & Embassy Suites by Hilton Downtown Portland along with 100 community partners from Albertina Kerr, OrePac, Rivermark Community Credit Union, Building Blocks 4 Kids, Binky Patrol & the local community created 1,200 hygiene kits in recognition of Hilton’s Global Week of Service. This initiative is part of Hilton’s ongoing partnership with Clean the World, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives around the world through the recycling of used soap bars from hotels. The kits will be donated to local charities to directly fight hygiene-related diseases, which affect 2.5 billion people globally who lack access to improved sanitation (more than 35% of the world’s population).
The main kit-building event took place at Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington Square Portland-Tigard hotel, where nearly 100 team members assembled 1200 kits. These kits, which include soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush and razor, will be donated to our community partners the Albertina Kerr Foundation, Union Gospel Mission of Portland, the Caring Closet and Building Blocks 4 Kids.
“Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington Square Portland- Tigard is strongly committed to helping communities in our own backyards and around the world in fighting an issue that can be tackled with just simple access to the necessary resources,” said Scott Youngblood, General Manager, Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington Square Portland- Tigard. “We want to continue bringing awareness to the fact that handwashing is an easy cure to hygiene-related illnesses suffered by many both here and abroad.”
