Press Release – Helena Association of Realtors – Sponsors Hand Sanitizer Production for COVID-19.

The Helena Association of Realtors (HAR) has donated $6,000 to Gulch Distillers to produce (on a non-profit basis) hand sanitizer which is critically needed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the Helena area.  These funds were generated by contributions from HAR members over the past several years.   Gulch Distillers will produce and distribute some 1500 bottles (approximately 7 oz. in size) to be placed in community areas of most critical need.  Priority placement include front line responders, hospitals, assisted living and nursing homes, mental health centers, health care offices, essential service offices such as correctional and law enforcement, restaurants with curbside takeout and home delivery, other food and fuel providers, street and sanitation workers as well as essential public service employees.
