Banana Boat Suncare, a division of Edgewell Personal Care, and CVS Pharmacy drugstores have launched a summer promotion benefitting Easterseals Southern California (ESSC), which assists more than 15,000 people with disabilities in Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Imperial, Kern, San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura counties.

Featured August 1-31 in 100 CVS drugstores across SoCal, Banana Boat Suncare will donate 50 cents to ESSC for each Sport SPF 30 or SPF 50+ sunscreen lotion or spray purchased. Look for the shelf sign in participating CVS Pharmacy stores.

Both Banana Boat Suncare and CVS Pharmacy are longtime supporters of ESSC, partnering with the non-profit for more than 11 years on a range of fundraising initiatives, including an annual golf tournament. Easterseals is leading the way to full equity, inclusion and access through life-changing disability and community services.  The Banana Boat promotion helps provide funding to support the organization’s services and community programs to assist people with disabilities and their families. ESSC works tirelessly to enhance quality of life and expand local access to healthcare, education and employment opportunities.

Said Mark Whitley, president & CEO of ESSC, “We appreciate the ongoing generosity of Banana Boat Suncare and CVS Pharmacy. Community-based 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 Scott Sunga, California Business Manager of Edgewell, “The Banana Boat Suncare brand is excited to be partnering again with Easterseals Southern California and CVS Pharmacy for such a great cause.”

According to the CDC, 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.  For more information on preventing skin cancer, visit: https://www.skincancer.org
