MAGNET partners with Urban League for sanitizer donation

MAGNET, the Ohio manufacturing alliance, has partnered with The Urban League of Greater Cleveland and six other urban leagues across the state, including the Greater Warren Youngstown Urban League, to donate thousands of gallons of hand sanitizer to help fight COVID-19 in minority communities.

Each kit contains three one-gallon bottles of hand sanitizer, as well as a dozen small, refillable dispensing bottles. The Urban League affiliates will give the hand sanitizer kits to minority-owned businesses, and community organizations and faith-based organizations that serve minority communities.

The hand sanitizer was donated by Proctor & Gamble and Cleveland Whiskey donated its services to bottle the sanitizer into kits. Azium, a manufacturer of plastic containers based in Columbus, donated the bottles and MAGNET donated pour spouts and cartons.

“We are pleased to be able to be part of this effort to combat COVID-19 in the minority communities in helping to address the disparities that exist,” said Thomas Conley, president and CEO of the Greater Warren Youngstown Urban League.

Anyone interested in receiving the kits should contact the Greater Warren Youngstown Urban League at 330-394-4316.
