This week, Bruce Power is completing the distribution of 50,000 litres of hand sanitizer, free of charge, to community organizations and residents in need throughout Bruce, Grey and Huron counties and in First Nations communities in Northern Ontario.
Our staff is overseeing the packaging and shipping of the hand sanitizer from The Plex in Saugeen Shores. Among the recipients of the final shipments are food banks in Grey, Bruce and Huron, Saugeen Ojibway Nation, and the Town of South Bruce Peninsula. Some 600 boxes with “How to Wash Your Hands” cards and hang tags are also being sent to the Provincial Building Trades Union for distribution to 12 locations throughout Ontario.
While we continue to encourage everyone to wash their hands, we also ask that you do so safely when using hand sanitizer. Bruce Power once again thanks Junction 56 Distillery in Stratford, the makers of the sanitizer, and Three Sheets Brewing in Port Elgin for bottling and distribution.
