Standard Textile Partners with The Shower of Hope: A Collaborative Approach to Ending Homelessness


CINCINNATI, Ohio, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Standard Textile Co., Inc., a global leader in the healthcare and hospitality textile markets, announces its support of The Shower of Hope, a non-profit organization in Los Angeles, California that offers more than 2,000 showers a month to individuals experiencing homelessness throughout Los Angeles County.

In November of 2020, Standard Textile launched "Standard Textile Cares," a program to support organizations across the United States that provide mobile shower services to people living either on the streets or in insufficient housing, with a goal of supporting 80,000 showers by the end of 2021.

Standard Textile's President and CEO, Gary Heiman, states: "I'm inspired by the unwavering commitment The Shower of Hope has demonstrated in its efforts to reach the homeless population in Los Angeles County. We applaud the commitment of their entire team for striving to make a difference in our communities. We know that acts, both large and small, have the potential of creating a better future for those in need."

The company's support of The Shower of Hope extends Standard Textile's reach to Southern California where people are more likely to live unsheltered. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that Los Angeles County has a homeless population of about 56,257 people, the second-highest homeless population in the nation.

"We greatly appreciate the partnership with Standard Textile, who has actively supported us by providing critical hygiene items that our guests need to shower. We often forget how important it is to have a shower not just for our physical health, but mental health as well," states Mel Tillekerante, Executive Director of The Shower of Hope.

Other organizations Standard Textile has supported through their Standard Textile Cares program include LavaMae, Streetside Showers, Hope thru Soap, and Shower Up. Since Standard Textile Cares launched, the company has donated thousands of bath towels, wash cloths, shower curtains, and blankets to organizations offering shower services. Currently, the company is supporting 63,500 showers annually.
