Founding Spirits donated our hand sanitizer to the DC nonprofit, Serve Your City, to pack in backpacks provided for students at their 2nd Annual DC Back to School Bash serving Ward 6.
We were delighted to provide our support to this important program. During the early days of the pandemic, we transitioned our distillery from making spirits to making FDA-approved hand sanitizer with a recipe from the World Health Organization. We used the sanitizer for our team and guests across our restaurants AND were able to provide it in bulk and in bottles to local hospitals, healthcare workers, first responders, community groups, and more. Now, we are able to provide our hand sanitizer to kids in our community as they are heading back to school.
Serve Your City is working with our District communities to help our neighbors transition back to in-person school life, ensuring they have the resources and support they need to thrive. Building off the success of last year’s inaugural Back to School Bash, which reached over 425 students and families, this year they doubled down on their efforts providing 1,000 backpacks with necessary school supplies (including Founding Spirits Hand Sanitizer).
Serve Your City works to support the basic needs for community members and provide life-changing experiences and opportunities for under-resourced Washington, D.C. students through mutual aid, community-building, and educational programming.
