With the government's permission distilleries around the country have been making hand sanitizer and now it's happening the Rockford-area.

Rockford's own Grant View Distillery has been given the "go-ahead" to produce hand sanitizer that will be donated for use by first responders and government officials. Gustafson Farm will also be teaming up with them for the project.

We have been in contact with the local officials and are working out the details so we can distribute the necessary product to our first responders (fire, police and local officials).

The best part of their news is one of the final thoughts,

By supporting each other and working together, we will get through these difficult times!

Stay healthy, friends.
