Mlily USA Teams with Local Distillery to Donate Hand Sanitizer to Area Hospitals
Partnering with distillery Ole Smoky Moonshine, mattress manufacturer Mlily USA is donating 75 gallons of medical-grade hand sanitizer to three different hospital networks in Eastern Tennessee and in South Carolina to help healthcare workers in the battle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ole Smoky Moonshine, another Tennessee-based company who has partnered with Mlily in the past with philanthropic initiatives, shifted some of its production to manufacturing hand sanitizer made with 80-percent alcohol. The company delivered the sanitizer to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, a 152-bed pediatric care medical center located in Knoxville; nine-unit Covenant Health System in East Tennessee; and Anderson Memorial Hospital, a 461-bed medical center in Anderson, South Carolina, close to the company’s factory. Each hospital was given 25 gallons of the hand sanitizer.
“We are in unprecedented times, and our healthcare workers are working on the front lines to help those impacted most. We’re fortunate to be able to supply them with the tools they need to remain healthy as they continue to heal those who are ill,” said Stephen Chen, president of MLily USA. “In speaking with leaders in our community health systems, their immediate need was hand sanitizer, and our partner Ole Smoky had it packaged and ready to go.”
