On Tuesday June 25, 2019 Southampton Town Councilwoman Christine Scalera, representatives from Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, the Parks and Recreation Department and her fellow Town Board members cut the ribbon for the Towns new free SPF 30 sunscreen program. The initiative was brought to the Councilwoman earlier this year by Creative Advertising Concepts (CAC), and as part of the program CAC works with the Town to find local sponsors to support the project. Stony Brook Southampton Hospital signed on right away and is sponsoring all of the dispensers throughout the Town.
“The program, provides free SPF 30 broad spectrum sports sunscreen to protect our residents and visitors against the dangers of sun exposure, and allows everyone to safely enjoy our beautiful beaches, parks and recreational facilities all summer long,” said Councilwoman Scalera, “I would also like to thank Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for their generosity and continued support.”
Currently the free SPF 30 sunscreen dispensers are available through Labor Day at 17 of the Towns parks and beaches. For more information on the locations please visit the Parks and Recreation Department page on the Towns website at https://www.southamptontownny.gov/ParksRec
