The Center for Biocidal Chemistry (CBC) launched a new campaign, The science of helping othersto highlight the nonprofit and community-led efforts of the antimicrobial industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 2020, when many Americans began quarantine, numerous CBC member companies have expanded by donating millions of dollars in money, products, and equipment to organizations fighting COVID-19 across the country.

Over the past year, CBC’s mission has been to share vital information about antimicrobial agents and emphasize how effective disinfectants can be in killing harmful germs and viruses. At the same time, many of the individual members of the CBC have taken leadership roles in donating to organizations large and small in their communities and around the world.

With the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus by government agencies, healthcare providers, scientists and rescue workers, the antimicrobial industry also stepped up. The following is an example of the philanthropic efforts of the CBC members. For more informations,
