Ocean State Job Lot recently announced an incredible promotion that almost seems too good to be true, but when it comes to educators, the company is willing to go the extra mile. It looks like they are giving some vital products away that many teachers would consider gold nowadays.

From February 3 to February 16, educators and faculty members can pick up free hand sanitizer, hand wipes, and disinfecting wipes.

You read that correctly. For free.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially difficult on our educators, and we want to recognize these incredible individuals and help keep them and their students healthy,” said the company.

Teachers will not be questioned on the amount of product they need or asked to purchase anything in the store. All they need is to provide identification, and the products are there for the taking.

It’s important to point out this promotion is “while supplies last.” While teachers technically have almost two weeks to take advantage of the opportunity, the best bet is to be the early shopper and stock up the classroom for the remainder of the year.

When to Go

Thursday, February 3 to Wednesday, February 16

Eligible Patrons

Teachers, school management, and school support personnel. Proof of employment is required, and documented homeschoolers are included.

What You Will Receive

Free hand sanitizer, hand wipes, and disinfecting wipes while supplies last. There is no purchase necessary and no limit on quantity.
