WebMD Helps over 1,000 Impoverished Families through F-to-F “Bath-Packs” Project
As part of a major community service effort in December and January, 190 employees from WebMD in several U.S. cities took part in F-to-F’s “Bath Pack” project, putting together an impressive 950 personal care item kits for struggling families in need. 120 employees in Indianapolis (Indiana) and another 70 in Portland (Oregon) assembled the kits, which each included shampoo, soap, toothpaste, a toothbrush, deodorant, a comb and a list of WebMD wellness tips. The hygiene products for the kits were donated by High Ridge Brands, MetLife Dental Division, Hillsboro Implants & Periodontics, WebMD Cares and SC Johnson.
Completed “bath packs” were delivered to local social service organizations.
In addition, WebMD employees volunteered at the Portland Rescue Mission to serve breakfast to over 150 homeless, where they distributed more of the personal care item kits.
Catherine Daniel, a Senior Manager of Public Relations for WebMD, explained that the project, “was an opportunity for WebMD to provide those in need with the everyday tools to maintain their hygiene, thus encouraging overall mental and physical health and wellness.”
