ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (June 3, 2020) – St. Petersburg Distillery is partnering once again with Feeding Tampa Bay to donate their hand sanitizers to those in need. Every Saturday through the fall, representatives from St. Petersburg Distillery will be present at select Feeding Tampa Bay mobile food pantries and providing hand sanitizers to the public. These 1.7 oz bottles are consistent with FDA/WHO guidelines and created by St. Petersburg Distillery’s trained chemical engineers. For the details of these events, go toFeedingTampaBay.org.
To date, the distillery has donated more than 100,000 units of sanitizer to the community, including local law enforcement agencies, city offices and first responders. In March, the distillery shifted production to hand sanitizers in response to the shortage of the product in the area. To ramp up production, St. Petersburg Distillery hired 50 out-of-work bartenders, musicians, and restaurant and service industry professionals to help with packaging, labeling, and distribution. Workers are following all CDC guidelines regarding workplace safety, protective gear, and public interaction.
“It was clear from the overwhelming number people who came out to our other free sanitizer giveaways that this is a great way for us to meet a serious need and help take care of our community,” said Skip Ragan, Senior Vice President of St. Petersburg Distillery. “We’re happy to partner with Feeding Tampa Bay, which has been a perfect fit for safely distributing sanitizer to those most in need and making sure the public has access to the products needed to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.”
In addition to the complimentary bottles for the public, St. Petersburg Distillery isselling various sizes of hand sanitizer to meet the larger needs of pharmacies, nursing homes, hospitals, and medical offices. It can be purchased securely through the distillery’s online market place, which offers no-touch pick-up at the distillery, as well as delivery options via the US postal service.
