Harlingen, Texas (KVEO)—Austin-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka will provide free hand sanitizer to members of the public on Saturday, August 1.
The vodka brand says it has shifted its hand sanitizer distribution strategy as COVID-19 cases surge in the Rio Grande Valley and will make over 20,000 bottles of sanitizer available to the public.
The hand sanitizer was available via contactless pick-up at the Brownsville Sports Park at 1000 Sports Park Blvd between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or while supplies last.
Each car will receive three bottles of 375 ml sanitizer.
Those picking up hand sanitizer must wear a mask in their car.
Tito’s Handmade Vodka began production of hand sanitizer in March and has donated to frontline workers at various organization throughout Central Texas and the U.S, according to a news release.
More details can be found on the Tito’s Handmade Vodka website.
“We’ve seen a lot of demand for hand sanitizer in Texas and want to continue to supply the residents of our home state with our hand cleanser to help keep them safe,” said Taylor Berry, VP of Brand Marketing at Tito’s Handmade Vodka. “After giving away sanitizer for free in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio earlier this month, we’re now here in Brownsville to give back to the Rio Grande Valley, one of the nation’s hardest COVID-19 hotspots. We have plans to expand this program to additional Texas cities in the coming weeks.”
