ITIAH Angels for Learning Receives Hand Sanitizers from Merit Manufacturing
Sterling Heights, MI, September 27, 2021 – Merit Manufacturing, a Michigan-based personal care/home care manufacturing company, has donated $4,440 worth of hand sanitizers to support IAFL’s mission of supporting children in underserved communities. As an independent contract manufacturer, Merit prides itself in its speedy time to market, and the fight against Covid-19 was no different. In response to the pandemic, the company was able to quickly repurpose its production lines and obtained the required government certifications for hand sanitizer productions in just 4 weeks.
As of October 21, 2021, 260 hand sanitizers have been recalled by the FDA due to various reasons, including but not limited to methanol contamination, microbial contamination, or insufficient alcohol content. With strict quality control over raw material sourcing and product manufacturing, Merit has always delivered safe and effective hand sanitizers that contain at least 75% ethanol to ensure the products are effective at killing all types of viruses and bacteria.
Haiti continues to struggle in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. This combined with the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that devastated the country in August has left Haiti in a vulnerable position and in need of aid. With this shipment of 2,960 bottles of hand sanitizers, Merit hoped to assist in bringing Haitian children a better tomorrow.
“Merit Manufacturing is more than just the products we make. We are a company of people who believe we can use our skills to make a positive impact in our community and around the world. By supporting education programs, we know our efforts are going to directly improve the lives of young people and the communities they grow up in,” says James Hart, Merit’s Chief Operations Officer.
