Just Dump It Cares About Connecticut
This January donate cleaning supplies during GO! (Get Organized) Month
Sponsored by NAPO-CT
DONATE CLEANING SUPPLIES By January 20th 2023
As a part of the annual charitable giving initiative, this January Just Dump It and the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) will be collecting cleaning products to donate to worthy charities in our Connecticut area.
This year NAPO has partnered with Manchester, CT based HOPE 4:10 to collect cleaning supplies, even open ones, for charity. This also prevents the supplies from prematurely entering the landfill. A win-win!

About HOPE 4:10
"HOPE 4:10 began when Darcy (the current Director of HOPE 4:10) and two male colleagues were asked to help a single Mom who had nine children, find new housing. The family was continuously getting evicted from their apartments because having nine children in the home broke the fire code. She realized their level of poverty was dire and began helping them with great HOPE 4 the 10 of them to break out of the poverty cycle and thrive in life.
HOPE 4:10 was born in 2016 and has grown to over 700 members on a private Facebook page where goods are freely exchanged, jobs are posted, social service agency help is directed and people are encouraged to take the next right step. From our time helping Sophia and her children, we learned a lot! One thing that stuck with us was that people who are on government assistance programs like SNAP can only receive food — and they struggle more with trying to buy personal hygiene and cleaning supplies than they do with getting food. That is why Hope 4:10 holds FREE CLEAN FRIDAYS (usually held on the 3rd Friday of every other month), where bags are assembled and filled with items such as hand soap, napkins, toilet bowl cleaner, shampoo, body wash/bar soap etc. Then people in need that have signed up (currently 55 families) can drive through and pick-up their bags of goodies.
