When our founder, C. Kay Manos (Pantzis), began selling soap at her neighborhood luncheonette in Norwalk, CT, she had one mission: give people the best possible soap products, and help the local community at the same time. 40+ years later in Colorado’s Olde Town Arvada, Manos Soap Co. is proud to continue that mission through our Give A Soap™ campaign.
How Give A Soap Works
Simple -- any time you make a purchase from Manos Soap, we donate 2% of the sale to a local charity or nonprofit of your choice. At checkout, just select which Denver-area organization you’d like to receive a donation.
The best part about Give A Soap is that it’s not just a one-time donation; it’s an ongoing investment we make back into our community. Because of this, the campaign enables Manos Soap to extend our financial support for local charities and nonprofits beyond the standard donations we make every month. Step by step, we’re leading a local community movement in Colorado, and we want you to help us.
Who We Support
Our Give A Soap donations help support a variety of organizations committed to bringing wellness and innovation to our local community, including fellow small businesses, other soap and skin care companies, health and human service organizations, educators, artists, and more.
Our list keeps growing - take a look at our current list of community friends below and start thinking about who you’d like us to make a donation to on your behalf!
Why We Do It
After all these years, we still believe what Kay taught us about doing business - that a rising tide lifts all ships.
The clean, refreshing feeling that comes from using a quality soap product may contribute to our overall health and wellbeing as people, but at the end of the day, we realize that it’s just soap. However, at Manos, we believe that if we offer high-quality soap products, take care of our employees, and help our local friends, neighbors, and fellow businesses on their journeys, we can make an impact that goes far beyond “just soap.” We hope you’ll join us!
