In an effort to provide personal care items to people in need during this critical time, Colgate-Palmolive committed to donating $20 million in health and hygiene products to nonprofit organizations including Good360.
Thanks to Good360’s vast network of nonprofit partners, more than 400,000 Colgate-Palmolive products including soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, body wash, shampoo, and other personal care items were distributed in local communities.
Below are a couple of stories from the nonprofits that received these goods, and how the people they serve were positively impacted by Colgate-Palmolive donations:
- JC Inspires Foundation, Inc. based in Homestead, Fl, strives to help make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families as well as children in the most vulnerable communities in South Florida and the Caribbean. The organization created the JC CARES: COVID-19 Community Prevention Care Package initiative, which provides essential items to the people they serve. Care packages include products donated by Good360 and Colgate-Palmolive, such as soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and wipes. This donation will not only help these families maintain their health, but it will also prevent and ease the spread of COVID-19 to those around them.

More than 3,000 full backpacks were distributed to the economically disadvantaged in Bakersfield, CA, Thanks to the donation from Colgate-Palmolive, the backpacks included highly needed items like deodorant, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, providing relief to students and their families.
