PEORIA, Ill. – State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, will highlight a truckload donation of disinfectant wipes, courtesy of MicroScientific, to Peoria Public Schools on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 10 a.m. at the Roy Ricketts Center, located at 520 E. Lake Ave. in Peoria.

“Between monkeypox, common colds, Covid and the flu – schools need disinfectant wipes now more than ever,” Gordon-Booth said. “I am proud to have worked with MicroScientific to bring this resource to Peoria Public Schools. They’ll be used, and the school district won’t have to spend extra money purchasing wipes on their own end. At the end of the day, we want to make sure that our children, teachers and staff stay safe and healthy, and this helps that effort.”

The canisters of wipes can be put in classrooms, reception areas, breakrooms and other areas to clean multiple surfaces. Wipes have been provided courtesy of Illinois-based MicroScientific, a company that manufactures products used for the prevention of microbial transmission and cross-contamination.
