Safeguard WAGS KV

Safeguard is teaming up with Walgreens in a new collaboration with Americares to launch the Hope is in Your Hands Program, which will provide 10 million handwashes to communities and families in need. Americares, the largest non-profit provider of medical aid to organizations serving low income and uninsured patients, partners with clinics to increase service capacity, improve health outcomes and reduce costs for patients.

“As the pandemic continues to impact all of us, it is disproportionately impacting marginalized communities. Safeguard is deeply committed to stepping up as a force for good with strategic partners such as Americares and Walgreens,” said Freddy Bharucha, Senior Vice President, North America & Global Personal Care, Procter & Gamble.

“Through the Hope is in Your Hands program, we’ll continue to drive the importance of good handwashing as the first line of defense against disease, including COVID-19. Safeguard has been educating children on proper hygiene habits since 1963, and that commitment is as important today as it was then. We want to be sure families in every community have access to trusted hand hygiene essentials to keep their families healthy.”
