Houston-based AlEn USA, maker of Cloralen bleach, Pinalen all-purpose cleaner and Pinol laundry detergent, is donating more than 46,000 bottles of product to the Houston Food Bank to aid struggling families who are having difficulty finding and affording cleaning products during the COVID-19 crisis. 

"This pandemic has made cleaning products essential, and it has become more challenging for families on tight budgets or suffering job losses to afford them," said Greg Schwarz, executive vice president and US country manager at AIEn USA, a subsidiary of Industrias AlEn, S.A. de C.V.  "We are proud to contribute cleaning and laundry care products to the Houston Food Bank to aid these local families, especially during these extraordinary times and in the city where our company has been headquartered for 40 years." 

"A clean and disinfected home is vital to families during the COVID-19 crisis," said Brian Greene, president and CEO of the Houston Food Bank. "Receiving cleaning and laundry care products from AlEn will make a big difference in keeping families healthy and safe. The products are also important for us to have as part of hurricane preparedness, which helps families recover from storm damage."

The donation to the Houston Food Bank is part of AlEn's Community of Clean initiative and made possible by the AlEn Foundation, which is donating more than a million bottles of cleaning and laundry products during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The AlEn Foundation is also launching a matching gifts program for its US employees who want to make donations to the Houston Food Bank.
