Company delivers comfort care kits to area hospitals

Naples Soap Co. also made Easter deliveries.

NAPLES — Naples Soap Co., known for its natural and organically-made skin and hair care products, recently provided hundreds of comfort care kits to health care workers at Lee Health and NCH Healthcare.

The kits, according to a statement, 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 health care providers who are working tirelessly to serve our community,” Naples Soap Co. founder and CEO Deanna Wallin says in the statement. “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.”

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,” says Paula DiGrigoli of NCH Healthcare in the statement. “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 Co. assembled Easter bags with bath bombs and heart soaps for local children. Over 250 students from Village Oaks Elementary School in Immokalee received these bags on Good 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, the release adds. “We know times are tough for everyone, and we wanted to share some Easter joy,” says Wallin. “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.”
