Paris ISD was included as one of the 400 U.S. public schools in which Kimberly-Clark Professionals donated 1 million face masks and cleaning products.
The donation, consisting of Kimberly-Clark Professional™ General Purpose Face Masks, Scott® 24 Wipes and Scott® Gel Hand Sanitizer with Moisturizers, will support over 235,000 K-12 students, faculty and administrators in nearly 400 schools across 15 states where Kimberly-Clark employees live and work, including locations in Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin, among others.
Paris ISD received 1 pallet (56,000) of K-C General Purpose Face Masks, 12 cases (72 bottles) of Scott Gel Hand Sanitizer with Moisturizers 32 oz and 10 cases (60 canisters) of 24 hour Scott Sanitizing wipes.
“We know that many schools across the country are still in need of proper supplies to help protect students and faculty as they work to finish the school year strong,” said Susan Gambardella, President, Kimberly-Clark Professional North America.
This donation comes as schools are evaluating not just their year-end protocols, but how they will address learning in the fall.
While requirements in public and private spaces vary by state, the CDC continues to recommend the consistent and correct use of masks, hand hygiene, cleaning and disinfection to help ensure the safe delivery of in-person instruction in schools. These guidelines are all part of the CDC’s ‘Operational Strategy for K-12 Schools through Phased Prevention.’
