Kindness Bubbles Up: Westside Community Church’s Food Bank Receives Thoughtful Donation

Quiet Thyme Soaps, along with the spouses of Abrams-Kiewit (a Joint Venture) recently teamed up to provide soaps and soap decks to visitors to the food pantry at Westside Community Church in El Paso.

“It was a pleasure to work with these spouses to give back to our community. Everyone needs soap, but not everyone can afford a gentle quality soap. With El Paso’s weather and water conditions, the soap we use can greatly affect our comfort,” said Christina Camp, owner of Quiet Thyme Soaps.

“Here in the U.S., we are well-educated on the importance of hygiene and its ability to prevent deaths due to illness such as pneumonia and diarrheal disease. But, what if you can’t afford your basic needs such as food, water, and shelter? Soap, though necessary, can become unattainable to those truly in need.” Camp adds.

While focusing on simple ingredients, Camp says she also aims to give back to the community that has helped her business thrive.

All products are scented with essential oils and naturally colored with herbs, clays, honey, etc.”
