Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A local nonprofit organization is expecting a historic donation Monday in Spokane. Project Beauty Share, an initiative to collect cosmetics and beauty products and distribute them through local agencies to women of all ages whose circumstances do not allow them to afford these products, reports an enormous donation of products is on its way to the Lilac City.

According to the organization's president, Marianne Borhnhoft, the donation will benefit a dozen local nonprofit organizations and the women they serve. Two semi trucks packed with hair care products like shampoo and conditioner will arrive in Spokane Monday morning.

The record-setting donation of high-end new hair care product is valued at $1.8 million and was made possible by a team of Spokane businesses.

The semis loaded with 47 pallets and 60,000 lbs of product will be unloaded by employees with City Auto Body Center and community volunteers. They will be working for several days to unload and transport the product to a storage facility.

The products will then be distributed to area non-profits that serve the working poor, the homeless, domestic violence survivors. These organizations include: YWCA’s Alternatives to Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter, Anna Ogden Hall, Cup of Cool Water, Hope House, Our Place Community Ministries, Our Sister’s Closet at the YWCA, Ronald McDonald House Charities, St. Margaret’s Shelter and Catholic Charities’ CAPA program.
