Activities Benefit Charities!
ACI and its members work year-round to contribute to a better quality of life and support society's efforts to enhance health and well-being through improved hygiene and sanitation. Our time together at the ACI Convention is no different and provides an excellent venue for our industry to demonstrate our commitment to better living.
The ACI Convention hosted four charity events this year:
The ACI Charity events held during the ACI Convention benefit Cleaning for a Reason, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides free residential cleaning services to women undergoing treatment for cancer so that they may better focus on their families and getting well.
On Wednesday morning, the newly re-instated ACI Annual 5K Fun Run sponsored by P&G Chemicals kicked off at 6 AM! More than 100 attendees registered for this fun event! "Dark and Early" attendees participated as runners or walkers. It was an excellent turn out and show of support; and first and second-place runners and walkers were awarded at the Convention closing dinner reception.
Shell Chemical LP was once again the official sponsor of the 2015 Charity Duck Race which took place Wednesday afternoon. Many participated to watch their ducks and corporate ducks swim down the Lazy River. Participants got to showcase their artistic skills on their ducks which were not limited to drawings and paint – some also included props!
Friday afternoon, the 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was an enjoyable sporty competition. Awards were also handed out at the Convention closing event. ACI helped Cleaning for a Reason raised over $30,000, a record-breaking amount!
During our Clean the World ONE Project event at Grande Lakes, attendees collaborated to build hygiene kits for disadvantaged people. Kits include bars of recycled soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, a toothbrush, toothpaste, a washcloth and an inspirational message. They will be distributed to organizations serving the homeless in Central Florida.
