The Ritedose Corporation donates hand sanitizer to hospitals in response to COVID-19 pandemic

March 26, 2020

The Ritedose Corporation, a Columbia based pharmaceutical company, takes decisive action in response to the community impact of COVD-19 announcing it has donated about 1,500 bottles of hand sanitizer to Prisma Health and other South Carolina healthcare facilities. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, hand sanitizer has been in high demand and hard to find on store shelves. The shortage has affected hospitals and healthcare workers who are on the front lines, treating patients infected with coronavirus.

The Ritedose Corporation started producing hand sanitizer for its Columbia facility following the shortage. The company decided to respond to this crisis, by donating its hand sanitizer to those who need it most, and they plan to continue providing hand sanitizer throughout the community.

Another donation is planned for a mental health facility and Family Shelter, a temporary housing complex for families in Columbia.
