Garnier USA delivering hand sanitizers to retail employees
Garnier USA is joining the COVID-19 battle by pledging to make a special delivery to retail employees who are working on the frontlines.
The beauty brand announced that in response to the ongoing hand sanitizer shortage, it will produce 2 million units of 4-fl-oz. hand sanitizer at its New Jersey facility, which will be distributed free of charge to retail employees in the most affected areas of the country.
“We are very grateful for the hard work of essential employees and the service they are bringing to our local communities. Our number one priority at Garnier is to take care of each other,” Alanna McDonald, president of Garnier USA said. “We are working as quickly as possible to produce hand sanitizers to help frontline retail employees stay safe and healthy during this Coronavirus outbreak.”
In addition to its donation, Garnier also will contribute more than $1 million to support the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, which aids the most vulnerable groups of people affected by COVID-19.
“At Garnier, we believe it is our corporate social responsibility to support those working on the frontline every day and those who are helping to protect the most vulnerable populations across the world,” Adrien Koskas, Garnier global brand president said.
