WHO:RPP Products’ VP Retail Sales, Gabe Purvis, and his team will deliver 250 gallons of hand sanitizer to help Denver’s homeless population fight the COVID-19 crisis.

Purvis will be met by Denver Rescue Mission CEO Brad Meuli and Britta Fisher, Chief Housing Officer, Denver Office of Economic Development, to receive the hand sanitizer supply.
WHY:With inventories dangerously low, or completely out of stock, the current lack of hand sanitizer is impacting the potential health and safety of millions of Americans during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

RPP Products, a Southern California-based motor oil and lubricants company, pivoted operations in just seven days and began making FDA-approved hand sanitizer to help fill the need. The company is committed to donating hand sanitizer to homeless shelters, food banks and other vital community services across the country for as long as it’s needed and while supplies last.

RPP Products is the nation’s #1 automotive oil and chemical manufacturer and distributor to convenience and grocery stores. RPP is currently producing in excess of 30,000 gallons daily, and continues to ramp up its production capacity by tens of thousands of gallons per day.

RPP Products has also made hand sanitizer available to essential workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis (hospital staff, first responders, postal carriers, etc.) and to the public through its convenience and grocery distribution channels.
