COLORADO SPRINGS — There's no arguing that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a massive portion of our daily lives.

In the midst of these changes, many local businesses are finding ways to overcome and adapt to keep their doors open, while at the same time, help those around them.

Similarly, businesses hit hard are reporting a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.

This outpouring reminding all of us that while this global epidemic has changed so much, it HASN'T changed people's desire for community.

This is We're Open Colorado, a segment dedicated to highlighting local businesses that are still open and finding unique ways to serve the community.

With all of this in mind, let's take a look at how 3 Hundred Days of Shine Distillery is working to create, sell, and donate hand sanitizer to fill the growing community need.

The Distillery, which is known for its moonshine, added hand sanitizer into the mix recently and is donating to organizations on the front line of this crisis after every purchase.

Due to updated guidelines passed down by the FDA, Currently 3 Hundred Days of Shine has stopped producing sanitizer. They are currently working to implement the new changes into future batches.

"We have the ability to make it and support the community so that's our goal," stated Michael Girard, owner of 3 Hundred Days of Shine.

They hope to reach a solution quickly so that they can continue to support the community that has supported them.

"Everybody is in this together, and there's needs out there and there's needs that we can fill, and that's really what we want to do," finished Michael.
