SCA Donates Ongoing Supply of Tissue Products to Children's Hospice

In a continued effort to support its local communities in Canada, SCA, Stockholm, Sweden will donate an ongoing supply of its Tork brand paper towel, napkin, and bath tissue products to Canuck Place, the first free-standing children's hospice in North America, daily providing a comprehensive continuum of care to more than 400 children and teens with life-threatening illnesses throughout British Columbia, free of charge to the families.

"Canuck Place stands out in our community as a world class facility and offers a very unique and inspiring service," said Doug Saunders, senior territory manager in SCA's British Columbia operations. "In addition to our efforts to uphold environmentally conscious and hygienic practices, SCA is committed to supporting exemplary organizations such as Canuck Place in their work with children facing life-threatening illnesses."

As part of the donation, SCA will work with Canuck Place during the year to provide environmentally conscious paper towel, tissue, and napkin products, most of which contain 100% recycled fiber.

Filomena Nalewajek, CEO of Canuck Place, noted that "at Canuck Place, we strive to make the children and families that stay with us feel as comfortable and welcomed as possible. Through SCA's donation of essentials like bath tissue and paper towels, we reduce our costs and focus on providing the quality of care our families deserve. We are so grateful for SCA's generous donation."
