Employee volunteers from Domtar’s Hawesville Pulp & Paper Manufacturing Mill read to Perry Central Elementary students; a grant from Domtar funded 160 books for the school.

Hawesville, Ky. – Domtar Corporation announced that employee volunteers from the company’s pulp and paper manufacturing mill in Hawesville, KY visited Perry Central Elementary School and read to students to commemorate the company’s donation of 160 books to the school. Each student received two brand new books to take home, and the remaining books were given to the school library. Domtar makes a wide variety of everyday products from sustainable wood fiber, and it is one of the world’s largest producers of a complete line of absorbent hygiene solutions, as well as an innovator in absorbent technology. The company’s Hawesville pulp and paper mill employs more than 460 people in the community.

“Domtar treasures the wonderful relationship that we’ve developed with the students and faculty of Perry Central Elementary school, and we are especially honored to be able to make a difference in children’s lives,” said Domtar Corporate Responsibility Manager, Heather Alverson Stowe. “Literacy is one of Domtar’s core corporate giving pillars, which is why it’s so important for us to foster a love of reading and to help put books in the hands of children in our local communities.”

Domtar’s book donation was made possible through the company’s partnership with First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides books to children in need. As part of its Powerful Pages campaign, Domtar has partnered with First Book since 2012 to provide more than half a million dollars in grants to schools and programs in towns that are home to Domtar facilities. Domtar’s grants provide funding to educators to purchase books through the First Book Marketplace, a website available exclusively to First Book programs.
