Thanks to KTVU for letting us know that despite the good intentions of Vallejo native E-40 donating 1,000 gallons of hand sanitizer to local prisons back in May, San Quentin still hasn’t used the donation.

California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Dana Simas said while they appreciate the donations, there are “detailed procedures for accepting donations,” and without giving specifics said that “unfortunately, the donation was not submitted in accordance with these policies.”

E-40 and Tom’s Town distillery told KTVU that they worked closely with government and prison officials to make sure their sanitizer met official standards and guidelines and filled out the necessary paperwork that they were given.

She said despite not being able to accept E-40’s donation, San Quentin has received many other donations in addition to hand sanitizer  produced by the California Prison Industry Authority.
