Cleveland: Spreading Hope with S.O.A.P.

If you don’t think human trafficking happens in your zip code, think again. Human Trafficking is the 2nd leading crime in the world — including the U.S. The majority of trafficking occurs in hotels and motels. The only time some sexual slaves can be alone is in the bathroom. For our Cleveland Chapter’s April Unified Promise, we took action against human trafficking by packing and delivering soap with a number to call for help for victims being trafficked at hotels. Our 25 chapter members labeled 5,000 bars of soap and went out into our community delivering 2,000 to local hotels and motels. On average, at least one missing child is identified by hotel staff during each outreach. If you missed your chance to volunteer and would still like to support this cause, check out the website of the nonprofit we partnered with, S.O.A.P Cleveland, by clicking here.
