MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Kruger Products, Canada's
leading manufacturer of quality tissue and paper products for consumer
and away-from-home use, including leading brands like Cashmere®
bathroom tissue, Scotties® facial tissue and SpongeTowels® paper towel,
proudly presented a much-needed donation at the Ontario government's
Spring Food Drive in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank. Hunger and
deprivation of basic comforts like bathroom tissue is a year-round
concern for many families, but with support from companies like Kruger
Products, a little help can make a big difference.
Kruger Products joined Premier Kathleen Wynne and Secretary of the
Cabinet, Peter Wallace at the Spring Food Drive in Toronto on Thursday
afternoon. The Company delightedly delivered 15,000 pounds of household
tissue and paper products to the food drive in a Cashmere® truck. "We
are committed to improving the lives and wellbeing of Canadian families
- it's at the core of everything we do - and we're honored to
contribute in such a large way to the Ontario government's donation,"
says Mario Gosselin, Chief Operating Officer, Kruger Products.
Ontario food banks assist an average of 412,900 individuals each month,
nearly 40 per cent of whom are children. Between April 2011 and March
2012, GTA-based food banks received more than 1,123,500 visits; this
marked the fourth consecutive year that rates surpassed one million
visits. Since its inception in 2008, the Ontario government's annual
Spring Food Drive has raised more than 159,000 pounds of food. Our
collective goal is to surpass this amount in 2013 and continue to
support those in need.
