Soap Sacks for Charity, or S.A.C.K. (Supporting A Community with Kindness is a non-profit that helps connect people from all over the United States. Thankfully, they are interested in crocheting/knitting soap sacks for donating to homeless shelters, food pantries, transitional housing centers, United way. Even the Salvation Army benefit’s from S.A.C.K. Over 9,000 soap sacks have been distributed nationally over the past two years!
And it is 4×6″ enough room to hold a standard bar of soap. Also, a paper tag with a short message is attached to each sack, giving the donation a personal feel.

Obviously they are not going to go out and buy a bar of soap.”
