Day of Giving: September 7

After receiving the largest donation in Project Beauty Share's history, the organization will be distributing hair care products (such as shampoo and conditioner) to its partner agencies on Project Beauty Share's Day of Giving tomorrow, September 7. The organization has dreamed about this day upon learning they were the recipients of two semi-trucks packed with high-end hair care products valued at $1.8 million.

The donation was made possible thanks to a team of local Spokane businesses. Diane LaValley, a senior vice president at Accountemps, initially connected the distributor to Project Beauty Share. When shipping costs initially seemed cost-prohibitive, Project Beauty Share then turned to TWTrans, a locally owned company since 1972. TWTrans provided a deep discount, but the expense was still too much for the all-volunteer run non-profit to shoulder. That's when Project Beauty Share called on their bank, Washington Trust. "Washington Trust is such an amazing community partner, and they proved that once again," explains Project Beauty Share Founder Julie Farley. "They are underwriting the remaining shipping expenses. This unprecedented donation wouldn't have been possible without them."

Thanks to everyone's generosity, a staggering amount of product (47 pallets consisting of 60,000 lbs. of product) was brought to Spokane. Project Beauty Share created Day of Giving as a way for the organization to start distributing these items to area non-profits that serve the working poor, the homeless, and domestic violence survivors. These organizations include: YWCA's Alternatives to Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter, Anna Ogden Hall, Cup of Cool Water, Hope House, Our Place Community Ministries, Our Sister's Closet at the YWCA, Ronald McDonald House Charities, St. Margaret's Shelter and Catholic Charities' CAPA program.
