Practice Safe Skin
In response to the Surgeon General’s 2014 Call to Action to address skin cancer as a major public concern, MFNE and Make Big Change (MBC) joined forces to educate the public on the dangers of the sun and to provide preventive measures in the form of free sunscreen in public recreation areas across New England.
MFNE is now offering cities, non-profits and private businesses the opportunity to obtain weather resistant, low maintenance sunscreen dispensing units for the benefit of their communities. A limited number are available for free to municipalities and non-profits that apply via an online RFP process, and any public or private organization can purchase dispensers for their use or as a donation.
The RFP process for municipalities and non-profits is now closed. We were thrilled with the popularity of this new initiative. Recipients have been notified and we hope to be able to open a new RFP cycle in the future.
Businesses and organizations seeking to purchase units can complete the form below at anytime.
A dispenser bundle can be purchased for $400. Bundle includes the dispenser body, pole, and a case of sunscreen. Replacement sunscreen is $200 a case. A case contains 4 bags of sunscreen (approximately 2,700 pumps). For help with dispenser set-up watch this video.
*These units were available until mid-September and have been taken in for the winter.
