SOMERS, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is pleased to announce a donation of 7,000 bottles of hand sanitizer from SC Johnson to support the UW-Parkside community during COVID-19.

“We are extremely grateful for SC Johnson’s donation and for their continued support of the UW-Parkside community,” said Willie Jude II, UW-Parkside vice chancellor of Advancement and Alumni Relations. “The hand sanitizer will go a long way toward helping us keep our campus safe and healthy and for that we say Thank You!”

Faculty, staff, and students have already been receiving the donated hand sanitizer and will continue to do so throughout the year. The sanitizer was also used during last Thursday’s “Brats & Socks for Shots” vaccination event with UW-System President Tommy Thompson. The event was to celebrate UW-Parkside students reaching a 70 percent vaccination rate.

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is committed to high-quality educational programs, creative and scholarly activities, and services responsive to its diverse student population, and its local, national, and global communities. We are a dynamic learning community grounded in academic excellence and focused on student success, diversity, inclusion, and community engagement. The campus serves as a premier comprehensive public institution and a destination of choice, serving as a focal point of local, regional, and global progress.
