Locally Made Sanitizer in Full Production

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

-Fred Rogers

No truer words come to mind during this especially trying time in our nation and in our local community. Fortunately we don’t have to look very far to see the helpers in the Tri-Cities and in the very company with which we work. We have witnessed this community pull together in amazing ways over the past 27 years. Seeing how people step up to work on the front lines during this unprecedented time, has been inspiring and reassuring that the Tri-Cities is certainly a special place.

Often times it is challenging to see how we can individually help but if you are looking for the opportunity it will present itself…and that’s just what happened. We are so honored to have partnered up with the Monson Family of GR Distillery Hand and Surface Sanitizer to make a donation to our local first responders and Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, The Monson Family, who own Goose Ridge Estate Vineyards and Winery, began production of a hand and surface sanitizer. The ethanol-based solution is 80% alcohol by volume. This is 20% more alcohol by volume than the minimum requirement for disinfectants and antimicrobials. The GR Distillery Hand and Surface Sanitizer meets or exceeds all the recommendations set by the FDA, CDC, and World Health Organization (WHO).

We are thankful for the Monson Family’s efforts in serving our community, producing such a valuable resource for us all to have and helping those on the front lines stay safe. We are extremely grateful to have found a way to help and serve our community alongside them. To date we have been able to donate over 500 bottles of hand and surface sanitizer, and we expect that number to grow!

Moving forward we hope to see many other opportunities in which we can partner and work together. We want to do our part in making sure our local businesses come back even stronger and that all of our helpers are being taken care of in every way possible!
