Paper Excellence Canada has made a $50,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross.
According to a news release, $30,000 will support ongoing emergency management operations in B.C. and Saskatchewan, while a previous donation of $20,000 went to the Nova Scotia Red Cross last fall in response to Hurricane Fiona. Paper Excellence Canada currently has operations in the three provinces, including the Crofton Catalyst mill.
“The Red Cross is a constant, comforting presence across the world, but that is especially true here at home in Canada, so we are very pleased to be supporting the Red Cross in the provinces where Paper Excellence Canada operates,” said Graham Kissack, vice president EH&S and Corporate Communications for Paper Excellence Canada.
“The Canadian Red Cross is extremely grateful for the generous donation from Paper Excellence,” added Luc Mullinder, vice president, CRC, Saskatchewan. “Your gift ensures that no one is alone when facing an emergency or disaster. It also supports initiatives that help those most vulnerable in our communities. Families and individuals who experience natural disasters and evacuations from their homes in the face of uncertainty at a time of crisis. These individuals are given essentials such as food, shelter and clothing. Your generosity ensures we can be there for communities when called upon and support those who need it the most.”
Since 2021, Paper Excellence Canada has supported communities across Canada with more than $1.7 million in donations and investment initiatives, benefiting the Pacific Salmon Foundation, Take A Hike Foundation, INDSPIRE, Vancouver Island University, Saskatchewan Polytechnic and more.
