Together, their efforts will benefit thousands in need throughout the Camden community.
Flexible packaging manufacturer T.H.E.M. (Technical Help in Engineering and Marketing) donated 76,000 sachets of its award-winning hand sanitizer to Volunteers of America Delaware Valley (VOADV) on Dec. 9 to support communities in need this holiday season. This marked T.H.E.M.’s first donation to VOADV but is one of many philanthropic efforts the second-generation family business has made since its inception 50 years ago.
“Giving back to others is at the core of what we do,” said T.H.E.M. CEO Neil Kozarsky. “We want to make a direct impact on people’s lives and provide them with the opportunity to improve their health, hygiene, and safety. We are proud to partner with like-minded organizations like Volunteers of America Delaware Valley that also seek to expand access to necessities in the community.”
T.H.E.M. employees brought the private-label moisturizing hand sanitizer sachets to VOADV facilities in Camden that Friday morning. They will soon be distributed to thousands throughout the area in recovery residences, domestic violence shelters, emergency housing centers, and others. This donation adds to T.H.E.M.’s growing total of sanitizer sachets and stick package products donated to groups, free-of-charge, including first responders, hospital staff, and visitors of the Battleship NJ site in Camden.
“Now more than ever, being able to provide our clients with the assurance that we are taking every possible step to protect their health and wellbeing is a critical part of our mission,” said Daniel L. Lombardo, President/CEO of Volunteers of America Delaware Valley. “This donation of personal use hand sanitizer will not only help our clients remain healthy, but will also be provided to members of our staff – further supporting our organization’s efforts to protect the health and wellness of all those we encounter. We are eternally grateful to T.H.E.M. for this generous donation, which will be distributed to each of our program sites for immediate use.”
The company’s hand sanitizer package design melds convenience, sustainability, and efficiency. This highly consumer-friendly single-use package is incredibly lightweight and won’t burst under pressure or leak in a bag or pocket. The package utilizes 60 percent less material per sachet than other similarly sized sachets with 1.2 mL of product. It has a three-year shelf life with no loss of potency.
