07 Dec Nice-Pak Wipes Used in a Variety of Ways During Island Hurricane Recovery
DONATION: NICE-PAK WIPES
LIVES IMPACTED: 1,000
This year’s Atlantic hurricane season has been one of the most active on record. The Caribbean and US Virgin Islands were hit by two category 5 hurricanes over the course of a couple of weeks. The islands were devastated by the storms and will be in recovery for many years to come. Good360 is dedicated to supporting these communities through every step of their recovery. Thanks to corporate partners like Nice-Pak, we are able to deploy recovery needs like baby wipes and cleaning wipes to nonprofits who are responding on the ground.
In times of disaster, Good360 works with trusted nonprofit partners who have experience responding to disasters and who have the capacity to handle logistics and distribute large quantities of product. In the early response stages of Harvey and Irma, Good360 identified All Hands and Hearts as a trusted, reliable nonprofit partner. Good360 coordinated the delivery of Nice-Pak product including baby wipes and cleaning wipes to St. Thomas where All Hands and Hearts is assisting in debris removal, roof repair, water removal and mold remediation. People who were affected by the storms on the US Virgin Islands rely on teams such as the volunteers from All Hands and Hearts to help prep their homes for rebuilding. The families and volunteers who were involved in the clean-up of homes were able to use these wipes for personal hygiene and the salvaging of muddy toys, furniture and other family items pulled from the damage.
After Good360 approached Nice-Pak about contributing to our disaster recovery efforts, they were quick to respond with product that was needed to assist nonprofits on the ground. With Good360’s extensive knowledge and experience of what is needed on the disaster field and Nice-Pak’s access to resources, the collaboration between our two organizations led to the delivery of thousands of dollars’ worth of critically needed product to where it was needed most. Good360 is proud to partner with organizations such as Nice-Pak and All Hands and Hearts to continue providing relief to those in need.
