Everydays True Value Hardware on Foote Avenue recently donated free health and safety products to Jamestown High School through The True Value Foundation’s Educational Heroes Safety Campaign. The donation included hand sanitizer and germicidal cleaner.
“We are very thankful for Everydays True Value’s donation to JHS,” said JHS Principal Dana Williams. “These supplies will be used for our students and staff. We can’t thank Everydays True Value Hardware enough for choosing JHS to receive this generous donation.”
At the beginning of the pandemic, True Value Manufacturing retooled its EasyCare paint production facility to produce FDA-approved hand sanitizer and other essential cleaning products to meet unprecedented nationwide consumer demand for health and cleaning essentials. In August of last year, the True Value Foundation decided to go even further to address the growing public need for these products as schools reopened by launching the Educational Heroes Safety campaign. JHS also benefited from True Value’s generosity last September with a donation of hand sanitizer, N-95 masks and cleaning supplies.
“Everydays True Value Hardware is pleased to be providing these health and safety supplies to JHS,” said Steve Columbare, Owner of Everydays True Value Hardware on Foote Avenue. “The True Value Foundation is focused on helping youth succeed with tools and resources to achieve their potential. Our children’s greatest assets are their educators and school staff. To ensure that our children get their best educational experience under these trying circumstances, everything possible needs to be done to keep our educators, school staff and children safe. Working together, True Value Foundation, True Value retailers, and the True Value Corporation will keep our front line educational heroes safe and your students learning.”
