Domtar makes a wide variety of everyday products from sustainable wood fiber, and is one of the world’s largest producers of a complete line of absorbent hygiene solutions and an innovator in absorbent technology.
“With our Personal Care division based in Raleigh, Domtar is proud to call the Triangle our home,” says Brad Goodwin, president of Domtar Personal Care North America. “We are committed to championing health, dignity and comfort in our local communities because we believe everyone deserves personal care. That’s why we organize this annual employee volunteer event at the Diaper Bank of North Carolina, and it’s why we’ve donated over one-and-a-half million diapers to the local organization over the last two years.”
The Diaper Bank of North Carolina (DBNC) works to ensure that families receive hygiene products they need by working with established family-support organizations to distribute diapers to low-income families. By leveraging these existing networks, DBNC is able to efficiently give diapers to those in greatest need in the community.
“Our goal at the Diaper Bank of North Carolina is to ensure that every family in the community has access to diapers when they need them,” says Michelle Old, founder of the Diaper Bank of North Carolina. “Because of Domtar’s generosity and commitment, we are able to work with our community partners to identify gaps in the community and come up with a plan to fill those gaps.”
Domtar’s diaper donations are driven by the company’s Comfort and Care Program that helps alleviate the financial and emotional stress for families in need by donating diapers to charitable organizations, such as the DBNC.
