Colgate distributes products to combat COVID-19 via dental vans

Colgate is distributing $8 million worth of free hygiene essentials to promote the maintenance of everyday health practices as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.

The company is distributing 25 million bars of soap with packaging that instructs users on proper handwashing technique, along with body wash, dishwashing soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Some of these products will be delivered by Colgate's mobile dental vans, which are operating in New York City, Chicago, Baltimore, Dallas, Washington, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and Charlotte, N.C.

Colgate is also working with Feeding America to incorporate hygiene product deliveries into grab-and-go lunch programs for local school districts.
