HOW TO HELP: Hand-sanitizer drive @ Easy Street

If you overloaded on hand sanitizer and have an unopened bottle to share, that donation bin is set up just inside the door at Easy Street Café (California/Alaska) in The Junction. As explained via Instagram, it’s for neonatal intensive care nurses. 8-ounce bottles of gel (not spray) preferred, not expired; the bin is accessible 7 am-noon daily through Sunday. (Easy Street remains open for takeout – as shown on our ongoing West Seattle list – and proprietor Matt Vaughan and son Archie have been delivering online-ordered music, too.)

    I have a large, Costco sized one I could distribute into old soap dispensers.. would they take it? How strict are they on ‘unopened?’ Hoping to help.

      Hmmm, how “strict” do you think they should be on unopened hand sanitizer?  Asking for a friend.

    I was excited to discover a couple large bottles of hand sanitizer I still had… Until I noticed one expired in 2016 and the other in 2012. Oops. Guess that’s a lesson in updating emergency preparedness kits more often.

    I have a bottle that was sent to me from someone across the country.  The dispenser part was taped down so it wouldn’t leak during transit, but I can’t attest to how sealed it is without messing around with it and opening it.  Do you think they’d accept?

Sorry, comment time is over.
