As Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County prepares to reopen for summer camp on Monday, June 15, Oxygen Development of Palm Springs donated 5,000 5 oz hand sanitizer bottles to help keep the Club children healthy. The company is known for its development of its high-quality color cosmetics and personal care, but recently started producing hand sanitizer to save the jobs of their 700 workers during the pandemic. The generous donation will be used during summer camp and given out with back-to-school supplies in August.
“This donation could not have come at a better time. We are experiencing a much higher cost than usual to open our summer camps due to CDC COVID-19 guidelines. Without our community partners like Oxygen Development we would not be able to impact as many lives across Palm Beach County as we currently do,” said Renee Booth, Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County vice president of philanthropy.
Hand washing and using hand sanitizer is a crucial element with new guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All Clubs are being stocked with the necessary safety and cleaning supplies. Donations like this make reopening the Clubs possible. Thanks in part to Oxygen Development all children will be able to have their own bottle of sanitizer on opening day.
Since this is such a large donation, all Club children will also receive 2 more hand sanitizer bottles as part of the back-to-school supplies given out before the new school year.
