Spirit of York Hand Sanitizer – Update & Thank You

We are so touched by the incredible outpour of support we have received. On our first day alone, we raised over $4,000 for our local food banks. Thanks to all of you for your incredible generosity! We were witnesses today to the very best of our Canadian spirit as people were patiently self distancing, over-contributing to the food bank, paying it forward to the next in line, etc.

We’d like to extend our gratitude to everyone that has helped make this possible. First we’d like to personally thank Digital Labels who donated all the labels for our bottles on incredibly short notice. Thank you to all the individuals and businesses who’ve reached out to us to offer to volunteer their time or donate resources to help us with production and meet the high demands of our hand sanitizer. These gestures of kindness during these times are a true reflection of our incredible community and what we’re able to accomplish when we come together.  THANK YOU. 

We also take our hats off to all the businesses across our province and Canada who are putting in place initiatives to help their communities in this time of need.

As we shut down for the day, here are some key updates for everyone that’s following:

We’ll continue to provide hand sanitizer daily while quantities last (10 bottles max. per person). We're open Wednesday-Saturday from 11-8 p.m. We’ll continue to update you here. 

We have received an overwhelming amount of emails, calls and DMs in these last couple days and our team is working tirelessly to try and answer each and every one of you. Because of the high volume, please be patient with us but rest assured we will get back to you!  

If this has taught us anything, it is that our community spirit is strong, especially when we all come and work together. Thank you all for reminding us of that.
