I have purchased items from local Walmart/DollarTree for local homeless shelters(2) in North Carolina to fight COVID 19 virus, but they want commercial cleaning products What are some of the largest manufactures of commercial cleaning products or wholesale distributors. Do you know or have you heard of any one making a plea/request for donation or deep discount for homeless shelter. The homeless shelter I supplied , bleach, soap, isopropyl alcohol,paper towels,vinegar, toilet paper The homeless shelter wants this list.. donations of any of the following items.Since I know nothing about commercial cleaning but I thought maybe someone else knows something I do not. I have seen gofund me sites for homeless shelters for several cities but none have much monetary donations. Can you think of anything I could do?

North Carolina, so far, has been very quiet and very lucky. Our numbers are still comparatively low, but whether that's accurate or not is anyone's guess.

The Charlotte area is certainly impacted, but nowhere near as badly as other large urban areas; traffic is light but the streets aren't empty. Outlying areas like Concord, Gastonia, and Mint Hill seem almost business as usual.

Most folks around here seem to be hit harder by allergies than anything else - however, I've been in touch with a few first responders and they're preparing for things to get pretty bad. Retired policemen are being "invited" to return to active duty - which will eventually turn into "required", methinks.

Looks like the homeless shelters are requesting products from the EPA's List N, which updates several times a day. I'd say your best bet is to work from that list and try to find something that isn't already sold out and backordered, to be honest. (There are DOZENS of brands of quats on that list, which are popular because they're dilutable.)

You may have to resort to donating the old standbys of chlorine bleach, Lysol, and peroxide; with List N being in such worldwide demand, it may come down to a question of something being better than nothing.

Antimicrobial manufacturers are really scrambling right now - some are building second plants for production, others are scrapping less essential products in favor of products being requested immediately. Equipment like air scrubbers is also in short supply, as well as HEPA rated vacuums.

When the mold season starts as the weather warms, things are going to be awfully interesting for the restoration industry...

Look up janitorial supply houses in your area.
I would say you're going to have a hard time finding disinfectants and sanitizers right now.
As far as brands:
Proctor & Gamble
Are some of the big names.
