Georgia-Pacific has made a large donation of paper products to United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. This donation includes over 3,000 cases and approximately 144,000 rolls of Quilted Northern Ultra Plush® bath tissue, which was manufactured here at Georgia-Pacific’s Plattsburgh Mill. This large donation will be available to area non-profits through United Way and will be managed by their staff.
John Bernardi, President & CEO of United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. said, “We are truly grateful for the long history of generous support that Georgia- Pacific has provided to our organization and to many other community-based non-profits and initiatives. The company and its employees set a great example for community engagement and generosity.”
Steve Maharaj, Georgia-Pacific’s Director of Manufacturing at the Plattsburgh Mill, said, “ Our employees are glad to be part of a caring community, and we are proud to be a partner with United Way and The Northeast Group to help deliver on United Way’s mission of helping people care for one another.”
