The CDC Foundation recently announced cleaning product giant Lysol has donated $2 million to the CDC Foundation’s new Coronavirus campaign, “All of Us: Combat Coronavirus.” According to the CDC Foundation, the campaign is raising support to bolster public health response efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The All of Us: Combat Coronavirus campaign is supporting the CDC Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund to address a wide variety of in-the-moment, on-the-ground needs from public health responders, at the local, state, national and international level. The ability to provide immediate resources is imperative in rapidly evolving outbreak situations. Key efforts will include supporting public health responders in local communities developing education and awareness campaigns, meeting the essential needs for those in quarantine and more.”
Speaking about the donation, Judy Monroe, MD, President and CEO of the CDC Foundation, stated:
“Lysol’s generous matching gift to our crowdfunding campaign provides an incredible opportunity for donors to increase their impact when they make a donation to support the COVID-19 response. Lysol’s donation, along with the donations of others taking advantage of their matching gift, will provide speed and flexibility for funds that are so desperately needed during this time.”
Chris Tedesco, GM Marketing US for RB’s Home and Hygiene portfolio, added:
“As part of Lysol’s mission to curb the spread of illness, we hope that our participation in the All of Us campaign will encourage others to join in with their support, no matter the size. Together we can all make a difference to help strengthen the public health response to this crisis.”
