Practice Safe Skin: Skin Cancer Prevention Project
In response to the Surgeon General’s 2014 Call to Action to address skin cancer as a major public concern, MFNE, in partnership with Bright Guard, is educating the public on the dangers of the sun and providing 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. Any public or private organization can purchase dispensers for their use or as a donation.
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 for Organic All-Natural Blend and $150 for Sport Blend. A case contains 4 bags of sunscreen (approximately 1,000 uses). For help with dispenser set-up watch this video.
*These units were available until mid-September and have been taken in for the winter.
