Hand sanitizer is a much-needed safety item as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, but many organizations are recovering from overstretched budgets and don’t have the money to meet their demand for basic protective supplies. Kira Labs of Florida wants to help by giving away one million tubes of its Medyskin hand sanitizer to groups in need.
The company is ready to send to hospitals, schools and non-profit organizations in need – interested groups can submit a form in this link to order a minimum of 2,500 and up to a maximum of 20,000 2.5-ounce tubes of 70% alcohol hand sanitizer while supplies last.
Several South Florida organizations have already benefited from the generosity of Kira Labs and its partner Simple Life Medical. Orange County received 100,000 tubes, a local Salvation Army chapter received 20,000, and 10,000 tubes of hand sanitizer were delivered to the Orlando Airport. Thousands more have gone to community partners like the Boys & Girls Club of St. Lucie County, Little Smiles, and the Delray Housing Authority.
At the beginning of the pandemic, Kira Labs and a partner provided a truck per day of their antimicrobial handwashing to healthcare workers at the emergency hospital for coronavirus patients at the Javits Center in New York City.
The company, which specializes in creating cosmetics like body soaps and facial serums, hired more than 20 additional employees to meet demand, doubling its production per person to bring hand sanitizer to the places that need it.
“There is no better feeling than helping others,” says CEO David Rosen. “This pandemic experience has impacted our organization in many positive ways, increasing our sense of teamwork and commitment to keeping ourselves and others safe. We hope that these donations benefit many wonderful people and causes. ”
