Both Banana Boat Suncare and CVS Pharmacy are longtime supporters of ESSC, partnering with the non-profit for more than 10 years on a range of fundraising initiatives, including an annual golf tournament. Their efforts will provide critical funding to support services that help people with disabilities to live, learn, work and play in our community.
Said Mark Whitley, president & CEO of ESSC, “We appreciate the ongoing generosity of Banana Boat Suncare and CVS Pharmacy. Efforts such as this, where our corporate partners join together to support our work, demonstrate ways our local business community can help to make a profound and positive difference every day in the lives of people with disabilities.”
Commented Bob Thurston, California Business Manager of Edgewell, “The Banana Boat Suncare brand is excited to be partnering again with ESSC and CVS for such a great cause.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 25% of U.S. residents, more than 61 million people across the country, have a disability. Of those, 23% live in California (more than 9 million), nearly 5.5 million of them in SoCal.
Banana Boat sunscreen products are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation which urges everyone to use a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day and an SPF of 30 or higher for extended outdoor activity.
