Reckitt Donates 4 Million Wipes to LA Community OrganizationsFebruary 8, 2022
Reckitt, parent company of Reckitt Professional, has announced a donation of 4 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes to 16 community organizations in Los Angeles, California.
The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health (IIGH) will distribute the wipes to the underserved, homeless, educators, and youth across the greater Los Angeles area. The donation is part of a partnership between Reckitt and IIGH which also includes a public art project to encourage L.A.-area residents to learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
“Lysol’s mission is rooted in helping families keep their loved ones illness-free,” said E. Yuri Hermida, executive vice president of North America hygiene for Reckitt. “That’s why, at the onset of the pandemic, we knew we had to step up to help combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Through this new partnership with USC’s IIGH, we look forward to continuing our efforts to provide resources to those hardest-hit by the pandemic and encourage people to educate themselves about the COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.”
