RPP Products has donated 250 gallons (approximately 1,000 32-oz. bottles) of hand sanitizer to meet the needs of Denver Rescue Mission, which provides services for 700-plus men experiencing homelessness at the auxiliary shelter at the National Western Complex during the COVID-19 crisis. The donation meets the immediate need for the shelter’s guests, volunteers and staff working in the facility.
RPP Products’ VP of Retail Sales Gabe Purvis and his team delivered the hand sanitizer June 1. They were met by Denver Rescue Mission CEO Brad Meuli and Britta Fisher, chief housing officer for the Denver Office of Economic Development.
With inventories dangerously low, or completely out of stock, the current lack of hand sanitizer is impacting the potential health and safety of millions of Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
RPP Products, a Southern California-based motor oil and lubricants company, pivoted in seven days and began making FDA-approved hand sanitizer to help fill the need. The company is committed to donating hand sanitizer to homeless shelters, food banks and other vital community services across the country for as long as it’s need and while supplies last.
RPP Products is a leading distributor to convenience and grocery stores. It also has made hand sanitizer available to essential workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis and to the public through its convenience and grocery store distribution channels.
