It goes without saying that with school opening back up at the end of summer holidays, after March coronavirus school closures, one of the primary items on every teacher's wish list will be hand sanitizers; unfortunately, with high demand, the price of hand sanitizer has significantly increased. The private sector has been stepping up over the past few months to make generous donations of hand sanitizers and PPE, the most recent of which was locally based Rotary Sunrise.

Rotary Sunrise President Stacy Parke donated 8 boxes of hand sanitizers (each box contained 24 bottles) to East End Primary School Vice Principal, Jessica Jackson. The donation allowed the School to give each of the 87 students individual hand sanitizers in the gift bag package and allowed the School to have a supply for the new school year to aid in proper sanitation and to decrease the spread of coronavirus.

President Parke also presented another 8 boxes of hand sanitizers to the Edna M. Motley Primary School, in North Side. PTA President Carol Saunds accepted the donation along with her son. The sanitizers are the perfect portable size for the students’ school bags and allows easy refill by parents or the School.

President Stacy Parke made the personal donation with the assistance of a good friend, and a generous discount from the supplier of the product. The hand sanitizers were then donated on behalf of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise to the Primary Schools in the Eastern Districts.
