Ray Negron, who has been involved with The Yankees for more than 40 years, says the inspiration for this donation came from two players who always look out for the Bronx: “It didn’t surprise me one bit that this great suggestion came from Gleyber and Geo, because they love this community and especially the kids.” Read more on New York Weekly Times
Zaccagnino says for hand sanitizers to become a part of everyday life, they must be appealing to users, as well as staying in compliance with important FDA, WHO and CDC guidelines. H2One has skin-friendly ingredients such as Aloe and Vitamin E as well as being available in: an awakening citrus or calming lavender scent. It contains 75% Ethyl Alcohol, surpassing CDC recommendations. See our feature on Los Angeles Weekly Times.
