Today, Igloo and Professional Basketball Player Alex Caruso teamed up on a surprise limited-edition Playmate Cooler to benefit the CDC Foundation’s CoronaVirus Response Fund. Arriving in purple and gold, 100% profits from the “Carushow” inspired Playmates will be donated to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Houston Department of Health who will distribute masks, gowns and thermometers directly to their local locations in need.

“First and foremost, thank you to all of the first responders and medical professionals that are working tirelessly on the front lines. As a native Texan and proud Texas A&M alumnus, I’m happy to partner with Igloo, a Texas based company, to give back to the Houston area,” stated Caruso.
“We are grateful to work with Alex on a cooler that will make a difference,” stated Brian Garofalow, VP of marketing at Igloo. “Igloo has offices in both TX and Southern CA, and we’re all fans of the Carushow…he’s both an incredible athlete and a great representation of our brand values. We are excited to work with Alex to give back to the Houston community and let his fans keep their drinks cool and food #ACFresh.”
