To provide underserved schools with essential cleaning products, Diversey recently partnered with Charlotte-based nonprofit Classroom Central, which supports teachers in Mecklenburg County and the surrounding areas. Diversey donated nearly $400,000 worth of products to encourage quick and effective cleaning and disinfection of high-touch classroom surfaces.
“Illness can easily spread within schools, making a smart cleaning routine a must for classrooms. At Diversey, we are dedicated to providing schools with resources that support health and productivity,” said Bill Meeker, Chief Human Resources Officer, Diversey. “Effective cleaning and disinfecting practices help eliminate reservoirs of disease, which decreases the risk of transmission and helps reduce student absences.”
Classroom Central serves almost 100,000 students and their teachers in 192 high-poverty schools. The organization collects and distributes free school supplies via its “Free Store,” which is stocked with essentials like backpacks, notebooks, craft supplies and cleaning products.
Diversey’s donation included more than 2,000 cases of various colored microfiber cloths and 970 cases of Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® disinfectant wipes. Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® wipes utilize proprietary hydrogen peroxide technology to provide fast and effective cleaning performance.
“Our employees are deeply invested in the communities where we live and work,” added Meeker. “We are thankful that we can make a positive impact locally and implement our mission to protect and care for people every day.”
