The worldwide Coronavirus pandemic has provoked some of the largest shutdowns our communities have ever seen. Social distancing is in full effect and the importance of proper hygiene is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Alarm over Coronavirus has caused a run on essential goods including hand-sanitizer making hygiene products exceedingly hard to come by. The impact of this is felt throughout our communities but, especially by those most at risk within them. While using hand sanitizer is a smart way to slow and prevent the spread of viruses, washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water is more effective.
Help Your Community
As a company dedicated to providing the tools that bring groups together and helping group leaders like you better organize your events, GroupTools wants to help you, your group members, and your communities stay safe. So, we would like to introduce you to a company that knows that #SoapSavesLives. Clean the World is on a mission to prevent millions of hygiene-related deaths each year and reduce the morbidity rate for hygiene-related illnesses.
By working together, GroupTools and Clean the World can help you bring much needed hygiene items into your community during these trying times. Hosting a Hygiene Kit Event is the ideal way to bring that mission home to your community.
