I am very proud of the Lubrizol teams who quickly identified the unique needs of the communities where we work and live and took action to address those in the most impactful way.” <br /> <br /> These donations are in addition to the impact of the company’s science, with its ingredients being leveraged in hand sanitizers, medical gowns, face coverings, drug products, medical devices, transport vehicles and countless other applications critical in the fight against COVID-19.<br /> <br /> Among the company’s $2 million commitments: <br /> <br /> <strong>Supporting Our Neighborhood Foodbanks</strong><br /> In all the communities where the company has significant operations, Lubrizol made monetary and/or food donations to neighborhood Food Banks and Helping Hands funds, ensuring those who need it have access to food, over-the-counter medication, household cleaning supplies and needed hygiene products.<br /> <br /> <strong>Supporting Local Businesses, Livelihoods</strong><br /> Lubrizol employees participated in community efforts to support local restaurants with food orders and made donations to groups like Vocational Guidance Services (VGS), a rehabilitation agency with a mission to prepare people with barriers to employment for a brighter future. <br /> <br /> <strong>Feeding Brave Medical Personnel</strong><br /> As medical responders provided critical care to those in needed, Lubrizol proudly purchased meals from local restaurants and provided meals to those working in local hospitals.<br /> <br /> <strong>Supplying Protective Equipment for Frontline Workers</strong><br /> Across the world, Lubrizol and its employees donated thousands of hand sanitizers, sanitizing sprays, medical gowns, shoe covers, protective glasses and IV infusion sets to local hospitals, emergency responders and charitable organizations.<br /> <br /> <strong>Developing and Donating a New Therapeutic Hand Cream<br /> </strong>With frequent hand washing, moisturizing is needed to protect hands.
