HORSHAM, Pa., May 10, 2023 /CSRwire/ - Sofidel, a leading global provider of paper for hygienic and domestic use has donated 233 cases of toilet paper to local Philadelphia nonprofit Maternity Care Coalition (MCC). The families that are currently assisted by MCC will each receive a full case of toilet paper, enough to last a typical family a few months.
“MCC serves many families through our home visiting and community education programs who live at or below the poverty level,” said Lonnese Bodison, Senior Director of Programs, MCC. “We hear first-hand accounts of how our families struggle to meet their basic needs. This causes a great deal of stress that ultimately impacts their overall health and well-being. The donation from Sofidel is especially impactful now, as we are experiencing surges in prices of food and household items.”
Sofidel is donating its Nicky Elite brand of toilet tissue. This line of products is produced with responsibly sourced materials, FSC pulp fibers and are packed in paper, making Nicky a plastic-free packaging product. The bath tissue is high-quality and embossed, offering maximum comfort and strength. Nicky bath tissue is biodegradable and septic safe.
“Giving back to the community is extremely important, and this is a valuable way we can help support the future of Philadelphia,” said Fabio Vitali, Vice President of Marketing, Sofidel. “Sofidel is committed to enhancing the communities in which we operate, and we’re thrilled to provide a few months’ supply of essential toilet tissue to deserving families in the Philadelphia area.”
“MCC is excited about this partnership which supports us with expanding the physical resources we provide to families which include diapers, formula, wipes, books, baby supplies, and now, thanks to Sofidel, paper products,” added Bodison.
