Clean the World, and your change jar – two new ways to help the Community Outreach Committee

You’ve all seen COC members donning green aprons and selling raffle tickets at PMPI events, and chances are you’ve also had to pass on a raffle ticket because you didn’t have any cash in your wallet. Now there’s another way to help, and no donation is too small. Look for the COC’s Power of Change collection jar at event registration and you can make a donation of any amount. The funds raised through the Power of Change will be added to PMPI’s overall donation to our charity of the year, Martha’s Table. It’s a great, feel-good way to get rid of all those pesky pennies!

Also, the COC is excited to start work with another charity, Clean the World. Attendees of WEC likely know Clean the World as one of MPI’s partner charities, and PMPI is eager to get the program going in the DC area. Clean the World is an organization that collects and recycles used soap and shampoo products. The recycled items are then distributed to impoverished communities throughout the world to help stop the spread of disease. To help with this program, please contact Jessica LaVay at
