Ewing, NJ—In celebration of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, ARM & HAMMER Laundry, a Church & Dwight subsidiary brand, has announced its sponsoring of Your Hour, Her Power, a global campaign by international nonprofit Dress for Success.
The brand has pledged to donate $60,000 to the campaign and is encouraging women to participate and donate the equivalent of one hour of pay to help women displaced by the pandemic. The money raised will help Dress for Success provide women access to programs that focus on job search support, financial literacy education, health and wellness, and entry to a professional network and safe community.
“We’re thrilled to sponsor this year’s Your Hour, Her Power campaign and support Dress for Success as they continue to celebrate women and provide them with inspirational guidance and resources to help them succeed, even during this challenging time,” says Joanne Lesaca, Brand Manager for ARM & HAMMER Laundry. “Women are facing overwhelming economic and career-related challenges, which is why ARM & HAMMER Laundry is encouraging others to share their powerful experiences to help unify women and propel them forward.”
