“This isn’t a stockup situation,” said Guerlene Merisme, Lilburn Elementary principal. “We just want to make sure everyone has some.”
This entire situation is a first for schools and they asked that those coming to receive the hand sanitizer and the meals bring patience and good manners with them.
“We didn’t have the whole team here on Friday, so we’ll be working out the rest of the plan Monday morning,” said Merisme.
Wu is working with donors to provide hand sanitizer to other schools later in the week.
“We don’t have anything definite yet, but we’ve had some outreach,” said Wu.
Jonathan "JT" Wu, founder and executive director of Preface, a local nonprofit childhood literacy advocacy organization, delivers hand sanitizer to Gwinnett schools on Friday. One bottle per family will be distributed on Monday while supplies last. CONTRIBUTED
