EnviroKlenz donates air purifier to local middle school teacher
Mr. Garner was raising money on “Donor Choose” to buy an air purifier for his classroom
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (August 14, 2020) – Mr. Garner, a middle school teacher in Jacksonville, Fla., launched a “Donors Choose” campaign to raise money to buy an air purifier for his computer classroom in Duval County.
“I wanted to have something in my classroom that might settle some of the kids’ nerves, some of the parents, and my nerves,” he said.
Mr. Garner teaches coding and oversees digital projects of students from 6th to 8th grade at Duncan U Fletcher Middle School, where more than one third of students comes from low-income households.
EnviroKlenz, an air quality company located in Bonita Springs, Fla., was moved by Mr. Garner’s story and willingness to keep his students safe. The local company decided to step up and donate an Air System and one year of free filters to Mr. Garner’s classroom.
“Our mission here is to provide every person with the tools and ability to access clean air. It is great to see teachers like Mr. Garner who go above and beyond to improve their classroom, especially in such delicate times” said VP of Operations George Negron.
The classroom is now equipped with an EnviroKlenz Air Purifiers with UV-C lights, that utilizes a patented earth mineral technology to capture and neutralize VOCs and odors, as well as a medical-grade HEPA filter and UV-C lights for germicidal destruction. The new system will help to support the building’s HVAC system and increase the air exchanges per hour in the classroom while filtering pathogens such as mold, bacteria, virus, and fungus.
Studies have also shown that improved air quality can reduce the number of absences, increase test scores, and improve teacher retention rates. Poor IAQ can cause respiratory health effects such as infections and asthma; and is directly linked to increased absenteeism.
With the new Air System, Mr. Garner, his students, and students’ parents can feel more comfortable with going back to school on Wednesday, August 19.
