The Urban League of Palm Beach County

The 50,000 units will be donated to hospitals, the underserved, and first responders throughout South Florida, in the months of May and June. For consumers, the hand sanitizer will be marketed under the Oxygen Health & Wellness brand and sold at OxygenWellness.com. The products are being sold at cost for $3.99 per 5 oz. bottle, sold in packages of six for $23.94 and $12.96 per 31.2 oz, bottle, sold in packages of three for $38.88.
