S-C JOHNSON"--THE MAKER OF PEST-CONTROL PRODUCTS "OFF!" AND "RAID"--RECENTLY ANNOUNCED A DONATION, OF AT LEAST 15-MILLION DOLLARS, TO HELP PROTECT FAMILIES FROM THE MOSQUITOES THAT CARRY THE "ZIKA"-VIRUS.  AND, AS PART OF THAT EFFORT, THE COMPANY IS NOW PROVIDING MORE THAN 60-THOUSAND CANS AND BOTTLES, OF PERSONAL INSECT-REPELLENT--WHICH WILL BE PART OF "ZIKA"-PREVENTION KITS, DISTRIBUTED BY THE "C-D-C", IN PUERTO RICO, THE U-S VIRGIN ISLANDS, AND AMERICAN SAMOA.  KELLY SEMRAU [LIKE "ROE"] IS THE COMPANY'S SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT FOR GLOBAL CORPORATE-AFFAIRS, COMMUNICATION, AND SUSTAINABILITY...

(SEMRAU):
"
WE'VE RAMPED UP OUR PRODUCTION--IN THE U-S, AND AROUND THE WORLD--SINCE THE 'ZIKA'-OUTBREAK BEGAN, IN BRAZIL, IN THE FALL.  WE DID THIS, BOTH TO ENSURE AN ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF 'OFF!', AND OTHER PRODUCTS, IN STORES--AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, FOR DONATIONS LIKE THIS.  WE'RE PROUD THAT THIS, AND OTHER DONATIONS, WILL HELP THOSE WHO ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO THE DANGERS OF MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASES.  WE'RE A 'FAMILY COMPANY' THAT'S BEEN PROTECTING FAMILIES FROM MOSQUITOES FOR DECADES--SO WE FEEL A PARTICULAR RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP FIGHT THE SPREAD OF 'ZIKA'."

(CLOSE):
THE COMPANY RECENTLY MADE A SIMILAR DONATION, TO HELP COMBAT AN OUTBREAK OF DENGUE-FEVER, IN HAWAII--AND WILL BE MAKING ADDITIONAL DONATIONS, IN THE U-S.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON PREVENTING MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASES, GO TO "S-C-JOHNSON"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"MOSQUITOES".
