MEXICO CITY, Mexico, November 20, 2020 — SC Johnson today announced a donation of 15 million pesos to the Dibujando un Mañana Foundation to fund programs critical to enabling girls and young women in Mexico and Costa Rica rise above poverty, homelessness and neglect. This is the 15th consecutive year SC Johnson has made such a donation to the Dibujando un Mañana Foundation. 

“SC Johnson is proud to continue our partnership with Dibujando un Mañana. Together, we have worked to help provide opportunities for girls who are the future cornerstones of families in our communities,” said Luis Manuel Hernandez Rojas, Vice President and General Manager for SC Johnson Northern Cluster. “We hope our contribution and collaboration continues to provide pathways to greater economic and social mobility to those impacted by poverty and neglect.”
