ALA 2018 Annual Conf - Community Service Opportunity


ALA Community Service Opportunity

Even if you cannot attend the Annual Conference, ALA has provided an opportunity to connect with your community.  We encourage our ALA Silicon Valley Chapter members to consider participating in this community service event. 



When you get ready for work each day, you likely don’t give a second thought to the soap or toothpaste you use. For many people in communities across the globe, such basic essentials for everyday health are hard to come by.

With that in mind, ALA is proud to partner with Clean the World for this year’s community service event. Founded in 2009, Clean the World partners with 5,000 hotels and resorts to collect their used bars of soap. These goods are sanitized and recycled in an environmentally safe manner, and then distributed to children and families all over the world who are in desperate need of proper hygiene.Please consider making a donation of $16 that will enable us to purchase three kits to distribute to individuals in need. Onsite in National Harbor, in the Exhibit Hall, attendees and exhibitors will work together to assemble the kits purchased, to be sent to a country in need.

If you are attending, when you register for the Conference, you will see an option to purchase International Hygiene Kits for $16, or if you are not attending, you may donate an amount of your choice to assist with our endeavors by clicking the link below. Together, our efforts can help families around the world live a healthier life.

Double Your Donation!

The Chapter will match your donation up to $50 per person.  To join us in this effort, please forward your receipt to Lisa Hild ( by April 24, 2018 and the Chapter will match your donation.
