Omarion is doing his part to give back amid Coronavirus pandemic.

According to The Shade Room, the father of two donated care packages to essential workers that includes hand sanitizers, face masks and oils. The donation came at a crucial time after CNN reported that there was a shortage in necessary supplies.

“The hand sanitizer business is about 5% of the total business. It is presently growing at a very high rate for reasons we would all understand,” a Bath & Body Works spokesperson said. “We are taking up inventory levels [to] be prepared for the potential increase in demand for some of our bleach products.”

Like Omarion, many other celebrities are finding ways to give back during this time of need. Last month, Rihanna and JAY-Z’s foundations donated $1 million each to COVID-19 relief efforts. “In times of crisis it is imperative that we come together as one community to ensure that everyone, especially the most vulnerable, has access to critical needs: shelter, health, nutrition and education,” Gloria Carter, JAY-Z’s mother and the CEO of the Shawn Carter Foundation, said in a statement. “The only way to get through this pandemic is with love and action.”

In addition to prepping care packages, Omarion is also focused on his music. As REVOLT readers might recall, he announced “The Millennium Tour” in November 2019. “We are so excited to announce The Millennium Tour 2020! Come rock with @omarion @shadmoss, @therealyingyangtwins @curlyheadedblackboy @sammiealways @prettyricky and @souljaboy! Tour cities will be announced on Monday, December 2nd,” he wrote at the time.

Last month, several dates of the tour were postponed due to precautionary measures advised by the CDC.

“We will continue to work with the appropriate state and local authorities and our venue partners to provide a safe and healthy environment at each tour stop. During this time, we ask for your patience,” the announcement read. “As each day develops, we will continue to plan accordingly and ultimately determine the best course of action. Our commitment is to keep you posted on a regular basis. Thanks for your understanding.”
