LAKEWOOD – A local brewery is donating 100 percent of its hand sanitizers proceeds to a local food bank program.
Southern Tier Distilling Company, who pivoted their production to produce alcohol base hand sanitizer amid the COVID-19 pandemic, has so far donated over $5,000 to FeedMore WNY, a group who helps the St. Susan Center in Jamestown.
Company officials say since March they have sold nearly 1,000 4oz hand sanitizers bottles.
“These unprecedented times require companies to think and act differently,” said Phin DeMink, Founder of Southern Tier Distilling Company. “Every individual and company in this community has an obligation to help out and support each other as we work through this crisis.”
“We are proud of this effort and happy that we could pass on the proceeds to such a great cause,” furthered DeMink. “The inspiring work of St. Susan Center, in Jamestown, and similar organizations around Western New York, deserve as much support as they can get at any time, and especially now.”
