Naples Soap Company, a local producer of skin and hair care products made with natural and organic ingredients, recently provided hundreds of comfort care kits to healthcare workers at Lee Health and NCH Healthcare. The kits included essentials items like soaps, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and toothpaste as well as other comfort items like bath bombs, chocolate and honey.
“We are so grateful for the efforts of our local healthcare providers who are working tirelessly to serve our community. We know that many of these nurses and doctors are away from their families and some are residing in hotels and other residences away from home. We hope our self care kits make their stay more comfortable,” shared Deanna Wallin, CEO and founder of Naples Soap Company. “This was just one small way that we can express our gratitude to those who are serving our community in such a life-saving way.”
NCH Healthcare recently delivered these kits to medical professionals who were working the night shift. “Masks prevented us from seeing the smiles of joy from our team members, but we could see the smiles in their eyes,” said Paula DiGrigoli of NCH Healthcare. “Our nurses and doctors have been working so hard. This donation came at the right time, and we are grateful to Naples Soap for their kindness.”
Additionally, Naples Soap Company assembled Easter bags with bath bombs and heart soaps for local children. Over 250 students from Village Oaks Elementary School in Immokalee, Fla. received these bags on Friday when they picked up their daily breakfast at the school. Bath bombs, chocolates and soaps were also delivered to families at The Shelter for Abused Women and Children. “We know times are tough for everyone, and we wanted to share some Easter joy. Acts of kindness and taking care of others is what we have done after hurricanes and what we are doing today. Giving back is a part of our culture, and we are grateful to be able to support our community through these efforts,” Wallin added.
