Veritriv Corp., Atlanta, Ga., USA, this week announced it has donated 25,000 rolls of new toilet paper to Love Rolls Inc.,  an Atlanta-based charity dedicated to providing toilet paper to the homeless community of Atlanta and eventually the world. Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, marked the annual commemoration of National Toilet Paper Day and Veritiv, one of the largest distributors of facilities solutions in North America, marked the occasion by making the third largest donation of toilet paper to Love Rolls in the history of the charity.

"It is an honor to support Love Rolls, as they work towards their goal of delivering one million rolls to the homeless community in Atlanta and beyond," said Martha Issa, director of Strategy and Marketing for Veritiv Facility Solutions. "Veritiv employees are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work through our Veritiv Connects program. As a leader in the distribution of facility supplies, Veritiv is well-positioned to support the mission of Love Rolls and we hope that our donation will help improve the day-to-day lives of homeless individuals across the country, and inspires others to join this wonderful cause."

Through the generous donations of companies like Veritiv, we are able to better serve Atlanta's 14,000 homeless people and the homeless communities in New Jersey, New York, Florida, and beyond."
