LAVAL, QC, Canada — Avmor Ltd. recently donated 4,500 containers of citrus hand sanitizer to the Sun Youth Organization for inclusion in their holiday baskets and hygiene kits for the holiday season, according to a press release.
According to the release, the Sun Youth Organization, which has been serving the greater Montreal community since 1954 through food banks and many other valuable education, awareness and assistance programs, relies on donations received from individuals, corporations and government sources for its success in helping the less fortunate.
The non-profit Sun Youth Organization has also placed Avmor''s hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrances of its community center in order to prevent the spread of germs, viruses and infection, the release stated.
Sid Stevens, executive vice president of the Sun Youth Organization, said: "Given a choice between a can of tuna and hand sanitizer, most people in need would choose the can of tuna. But, with the recent H1N1 pandemic, the donation of hand sanitizers by Avmor has been a lifesaver. We will be adding them to hygiene kits given out this season."
The generosity of companies such as Avmor will go a long way in helping the Sun Youth Organization safeguard the health and safety of the community, in addition to its sustained efforts to provide nourishment to thousands of families in need every week, the release added.
