Nathan Madden said the COVID-19 crisis is an opportunity for Americans to come together as one country.

That is why a business Madden owns in Leavenworth will be distributing hand sanitizer for free Thursday.

“I just wanted to do something positive, that brings the community together,” he said.

Madden said 2,000 bottles of spray hand sanitizer will be distributed for free from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at The Natural Well, 1121 N. Eighth St.

“This is something we can do to help people,” he said.

Madden said the business, which is located on the corner of Eighth Street and Metropolitan Avenue, will distribute the bottles through its drive-through window.

“It will just be first come, first serve,” he said.

He said the bottles of sanitizer will be travel size.

Madden said he does not know what the response will be to the giveaway. If The Natural Well has bottles of hand sanitizer left over after Thursday’s distribution, the business will have additional distributions Friday and Saturday as long as the supply lasts.

He suggested people can visit the business’ Facebook page,, for updates regarding additional distributions.
