This post was a Tide Spin post. Tide Spin has now merged with Pressbox to create Tide Cleaners.
In late August and September, parts of our nation were devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The Category 4 hurricanes caused over $300 billion worth of damage across Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.
With Americans in need, we, and mainly you, our customers, were there to help. As part of the Tide’s Loads of Hope program, we collected clothes from our amazing and generous Chicago customer base and were extremely humbled by the response.
All in, the people of Chicago donated over 3,000 lbs of laundry to hurricane victims through Tide Spin and in turn Loads of Hope. Sounds like a lot? Well, it is. A typical load of laundry is between 7-8 lbs on average which means over 400 loads of laundry were donated.
We here at Tide Spin want to sincerely thank our amazing customers for their support and rising to the occasion to help those affected when they needed it. Learn more about the loads of hope here.
History of Loads of Hope
Ten years ago, in response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Tide® created Loads of Hope: a mobile laundromat developed to restore a sense of normalcy and dignity through the basic comfort of clean clothing for those in the midst of a crisis. Since that time, Tide has helped renew hope for nearly 45,000 families across the country affected by natural disasters, from tornadoes in Missouri to flooding in South Carolina.
