The American Cleaning Institute is trying to help schools reduce absenteeism and educate young students about the benefits of handwashing. To do so, ACI created the Hooray for Handwashing program, which provides tools schools can use to create awareness.

Those tools and supplies are now available for free, while supplies last. To receive a printed copy of the story, coloring sheets and all digital files on a CD, email education@cleaninginstitute.org with a valid mailing address.

In exchange for the free supplies, ACI asks that facilities help spread the word about proper handwashing. Post photos of the materials being used on Twitter and share images and messages on Facebook.
