McLaren Health Plan Donates 3,000 Hand Sanitizers to Agencies, Vendor

McLaren Health Plan gives away mini bottles of hand sanitizer – along with many other logo items, such as pens, notepads, mugs, etc. – at community events throughout the year. With the coronavirus pandemic in full-swing, events have been canceled, so the hand sanitizers have been sitting with the rest of the giveaways in boxes at the office, not being used.

With the need for hand sanitizer at an all-time high, Tami Cuccia, quality supervisor, had an idea. Why not donate the hand sanitizers to our McLaren Health Plan partners who are working every day to help our members in the community?

With the help of Michelle Young, outreach representative, and Bob Warren, material clerk, Tami organized a hand sanitizer distribution to 10 Federally Qualified Health Centers. Bob counted, packed and shipped and Tami and Michelle personally dropped off hand sanitizers to health centers in Lansing, Bay City, to the “Tip of the Mitt” in Alcona, Flint, Kalamazoo and places in between. More than 3,000 bottles were distributed, including some to Allegra Marketing and Printing in Okemos.

In a twist of fate, McLaren Health Plan purchased the hand sanitizers from Allegra – a full-service marketing and print communications company that also provides logo promotional items – earlier this year.

“Our production team is committed to keeping the work of our essential clients moving through the pandemic,” said Dave Muhleck, owner. “Since the beginning of the shutdown, hand sanitizer has been unavailable. McLaren Health Plan was kind enough to donate to us 100 units they had purchased through us so that my team could remain safely protected.”
