LAS VEGAS – The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces the addition of a hand sanitizer production operation to its distillery in The Underground Prohibition history exhibition space. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum realized it was well-positioned to help satisfy the demand for hand sanitizer for its employees and guests, and within the community, while creating a viable revenue stream to support its operations.
“We’re proud to have been able to adapt our operation to provide a valuable resource to local community non-profit partners, especially during these challenging times,” says Ashley Miller, vice president of marketing, communication and sales, The Mob Museum. “In addition to community donations, the museum is excited to announce that we are now selling 1-ounce hand sanitizer bottles, customized bottles with business logos or messages, and commercial, gallon-size containers.”
The house-made liquid hand sanitizer is produced with 80 percent denatured alcohol and mixed in the distillery located on the museum’s basement level. It is available to purchase here.
In addition to being available for consumers to purchase, the museum has identified a number of non-profits with a significant need within the local community and has created a program to assist with donation requests. UNLV’s School of Medicine is among the local organizations the museum has donated to.
From Aug. 1-31, with every ounce of sanitizer the museum sells, it will donate the equivalent to another local non-profit organization.
