Rubbermaid Donates $1.3M in Hand Sanitizer Products to Schools

May 20, 2021

Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) recently donated US$1.3 million in hand sanitizer products to under-resourced schools across the United States.

The donation includes more than 270,000 hand sanitizer bottles and is part of RCP’s partnership with Kids In Need Foundation (KINF). The national 501 charity will distribute the bottles to more than 650 schools, impacting nearly 300,000 students. RCP’s contribution is part of the company’s wider Back to Clean initiative, which promotes the safe restart of in-person educational programs.

“RCP’s Back to Clean offers education facility managers, staff, and administrators the tools they need for a safe and sustained reopening,” said Mike McDermott, Newell Brands commercial business unit CEO. “While the pandemic fundamentally changed the face of in-person learning, we remain committed to supporting schools and students as they continue their reopening efforts. Our partnership with Kids In Need Foundation is just one way we are offering unique and actionable hand hygiene solutions.”
