ZucoraHome donates hand sanitizer to Habitat for Humanity

 19 June 2020     HGO Staff 

LONDON – As over 100 Habitat ReStore locations across the country get set to re-open and welcome back customers, they will be equipped with Health Canada approved sanitizers donated by ZucoraHome, the added value resource based here.

“ZucoraHome is a proud supporter of Habitat for Humanity Canada and Habitat ReStores across the country. Our employees participate yearly in a home build in London with Habitat Heartland Ontario,” ZucoraHome president and chief executive officer Brad Geddes said in a statement. “We’re proud to be supporting their safety measures by providing hand sanitizers as they begin to welcome Canadians back to their stores.”

ZucoraHome has donated some $60,000 worth of hand sanitizer to Habitat for Humanity Canada. It will be used in the charity’s retail operations as it re-opens in the post-pandemic recovery. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ZucoraHome converted its production facility to produce Be a Rainbow Hand Sanitizer as part of its Rainbow Initiative to support community organizations. As a result, ZucoraHome will supply hundreds of bottles of the product to local Habitat for Humanity organizations for their ReStore locations nationwide.

“The Be a Rainbow program is a virtual campaign launched by our employees launched at the start of the pandemic to inspire hope, generate a positive spirit and to recognize the need in our communities as we get through this difficult period together,” said Geddes. “Our team felt that there was more that we could do, so we shifted our capabilities to produce hand sanitizer to support our community partners.”

Habitat for Humanity Restores are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials, furniture, and fixtures. ReStores play an integral part in Habitat’s mission since funds generated are used to support local Habitat for Humanity operations and home building projects. Many local Habitat organizations across Canada had to temporarily close in-person ReStore operations due to COVID-19.
