SpongeTowels support flood victims and clean-up efforts in the Montérégie region

Kruger Products donates a truckload of paper products to the disaster region

MONTRÉAL, June 10, 2011 /CNW/ - Kruger Products is contributing a truckload of 30,000 rolls of SpongeTowels paper towels and White Swan paper products, to assist the relief efforts in flooded communities along the Richelieu River in the Montérégie region of Québec.

"The scope of the destruction caused by the record-setting flooding in this region is devastating and saddens us all," says Mario Gosselin, Chief Operating Officer for Kruger Products. "We believe in giving back to the community and we are optimistic that with support from their families, friends and companies throughout Quebec, Montérégie residents will soon be able to return to their homes." Quebeckers' long-standing relationship with Kruger Products, the leading manufacturer of SpongeTowels paper towel, Cashmere bathroom tissue and Scotties facial tissue, is exemplified by our dedication to supporting families in the impacted region.

Kruger shares the pain of the afflicted families and is honoured to contribute to the collective effort to alleviate their burdens and help them in a meaningful way. Kruger Products is donating one truckload of paper products to SOS Richelieu, which is helping to organize and execute clean-up and community support for the Montérégie region. The product donation will assist the group's relief efforts.

Kruger Products invests time in community-building activities and local philanthropy, thereby contributing to the health, welfare and social well-being of our neighbours and our community partners. Our philanthropic endeavours touch Canadian communities at large, particularly in the realm of cancer research, most notably through our long-standing sponsorship of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, conservation and children's health. Assisting our communities is part of our corporate culture, whether through large-scale corporate sponsorship or employee volunteerism at local events.
