Tide Loads of Hope was created in 2005 to provide free laundry services to families affected by Hurricane Katrina. Inspired by the resilience and spirit of the people of New Orleans, Tide expanded the program and has since helped families across the country affected by disaster.
Today, the program includes the Tide Loads of Hope truck outfitted with 32 energy-efficient Frigidaire® Affinity™ washers and dryers. Collectively, Tide has washed over 54,000 loads of laundry for more than 39,000 families impacted by disasters since the program launched.
Tide and the American Red Cross realize that little things—like clean clothes—can make a big difference to those who have lost the comforts of home.
