Serving Waldo County, Maine
The Soap Closet provides personal hygiene products to low-income individuals, families, children, and seniors in Waldo County. These are items that cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits such as dish soap, laundry detergent, deodorant, hand soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet paper and feminine hygiene products.
We Coordinate with Many
Instead of distributing supplies to the public directly, The Soap Closet works with multiple organizations in Waldo County that do. We work with each organization and their specific needs, providing them with funding, help sourcing, and (when available) donations that we receive from companies.
Please contact us if your organization would be interested in working with us.

Who We Are
After a decade of dedication and service, the original group of volunteers have passed the torch to a new board, and we are honored to continue the work they started.
