Project Beauty Share, Mayor Woodward deliver hygiene items to Safer Air Center

SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane’s temporary Safer Air Center got a big assist this afternoon from Project Beauty Share.

The nonprofit organization brought in boxes of personal hygiene items for people staying there as a way to get out of the smoke.

Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward and Councilwoman Lori Kinnear helped Project Beauty Share distribute the items.

The Safer Air Center opened Sunday morning as Spokane’s air quality worsened. It will stay open as long as the air quality index is higher than 250—in the ‘very unhealthy’ to ‘hazardous’ range.

“These are our neighbors,” Kinnear said. “These are part of our community that are suffering right now and I am so thankful that Project Beauty Share is here to help them out so we can show that we’re all in this together.”

The Safer Air Center is located inside the Spokane Convention Center downtown.
