Delivered 6,300 gallons of hand sanitizer to Tennessee schools
Ampro, known for its hair gel called ‘Shine n Jam’, donated a total of 6,300 gallons of its own hand sanitizers last March to the Shelby County District schools in Tennessee, where its headquarters and factory are located. The donated products will be provided as a gallon of hand sanitizers in each classroom at the local school.
Jack Sammons, President of Ampro, said, “We are excited to bring the hand sanitizers we produced and donate it to Shelby County schools by four trucks. Ampro products are made right here in Memphis. It is an honor to work with Superintendent Joris Ray and all teachers to ensure that students can safely return to the classroom.”
When Corona broke out in early 2020, Ampro changed its hair styling gel manufacturing line to hand sanitizer to supply workers in the community and in essential occupations.
Shelby County Superintendent Joris M. “Ampro has been very supportive in #ReturnStronger, a movement to get students back to school safely. This support will empower students across our county,” Dr. Ray said, thanking them.
