RestoraPet Manufactures Hand Sanitizer for Maryland, D.C., and Virginia Health Care Facilities

04/16/2020
RestoraPet, a Gaithersburg, Maryland-based pet supplement company, is manufacturing tens of thousands of bottles of premium-quality hand sanitizer under the company’s newest sub-brand Rejuvien to donate to nursing homes in Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C.

As businesses continue to navigate the global pandemic, many have pivoted their operations to contribute to Covid-19 relief efforts. As a registered nurse and a former director of a nursing home, who self-funded the launch of RestoraPet during his tenure at Oakview Nursing Home, RestoraPet CEO Brian Larsen decided to produce and donate Rejuvien hand sanitizer to local nursing homes in the tri-state area.

“In these trying times, it’s increasingly important for us to do what we can to provide relief for our health care heroes,” said Larsen. “I have a unique understanding of how the elderly are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as a registered nurse and former director of a nursing home, and can personally empathize with the needs of their health care providers.”

The bottles of hand sanitizer will be delivered to dozens of nursing homes and healthcare facilities throughout Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia, and will be available to all residents as well as medical and administrative staff, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce overall health risks for all who enter the facilities, he explained.

“Potomac Valley Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center is grateful to its community partner, RestoraPet Inc., for its generous donation of hand sanitizer. The health and safety of our residents and staff is our top priority. This donation will certainly help us in our continued efforts to remain free of COVID-19,” said Michelle McEyeson, the facility’s Administrator.

A limited number of bottles will also be made available to for-profit businesses to purchase. The proceeds from those sales will help fund further donations to healthcare facilities, the company said.
