OLDSMAR, Fla. -- It's no secret that businesses in Tampa Bay have to make changes, especially to stay afloat.

Businesses, like Devoted Creations in Oldsmar, are transitioning their spaces to help others.

"I think what we're trying to do here is, we're trying to give a little security to our employees and staff along with switching our production over to hand sanitizers and more soap for people around the world," says Devoted Creations' Lewis Henry.

They've been able to keep all of their full-time staff on board.

On a typical day, the company creates lotions and skincare for indoor tanning salons.

"I believe we're definitely having that defining moment right now and not just in the U.S. but worldwide," says Henry.

They're trying to make a difference in their local community, too.

They're handing out sanitizer to businesses, churches and first responders.
