Kimberly-Clark Facility Celebrates 30th Anniversary, Announces Contest

The Kimberly-Clark Professional manufacturing facility in San Antonio, Texas, marked its 30th anniversary today by announcing a $10,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio (BGCSA) as well as the creation of a program to help local Clubs teach children the health benefits of good hygiene habits. Both announcements were made during a dignitary event, which was followed by a tour of the plant.

The San Antonio facility helped revolutionize the commercial soap industry by launching the original Sani-Fresh 800mL bag-in-a-box liquid soap and dispenser system, now an industry standard. Nearly 150 million gallons of liquid skin care products have been made since the plant opened in 1977.

"On behalf of the state of Texas, we congratulate the Kimberly-Clark Professional San Antonio plant for 30 years of helping to enhance the health of people everywhere," said State Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon, District 120, who spoke during the event. "As an advocate for the improvement of children's healthcare, I would also like to extend my personal gratitude for their contributions to the community and for the health initiative the facility is announcing today."

Five students from the local Boys & Girls Clubs participated in a soap-making workshop and in the plant tour. Such workshops will be an ongoing part of the newly announced program, which will also include a restroom makeover contest among several of the Clubs in the San Antonio area. BGCSA student-members will regularly visit the plant for hands-on learning opportunities, and receive health and hygiene tips including guidance for proper handwashing.

The restroom makeover contest will offer a $1,000 cash prize to the winning Club. Kimberly-Clark will provide the Clubs with paint, paint brushes, cleaning supplies, and new soap and hand towel dispensers. A panel of judges comprised of employees from the San Antonio plant will select the winner. In addition, the company will work with BGCSA to develop a handwashing and personal hygiene educational class to ensure that all local Clubs will have the curriculum available to serve Club kids and their families.
