Kimberly-Clark’s Cottonelle donated 10,000 rolls of toilet paper to United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC), part of Cottonelle’s commitment to make sure toilet paper is accessible to the community throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
UWGMC reached out to Mercer Street Friends Food Bank (MSF) for loan of its lift truck (provided by NRG) to assist with pickup and delivery.
Through partnerships with MSF and Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS), UWGMC was able to move resources into the community. Mercer Street Friends added Cottonelle to their emergency food bags and Jewish Family and Children’s Service added rolls of toilet paper to their mobile food pantry, according to a statement provided by United Way.
“I am thrilled we have such a strong partnership. I’m proud of the work UWGMC is doing and I’m proud of our folks at MSF,” Bernie Flynn, CEO Mercer Street Friends, said in the statement.
“We weren’t expecting so much. Our mobile truck is going out to East Windsor with a food distribution; the toilet paper will be a bonus. Thank you so much for organizing this,” said Beth Englezos, JFCS manager of Senior Programs & Hunger Prevention, in the statement.
Together, UWGMC, Cottonelle, MSF and JFCS are partnering for community progress by making sure that individuals and families in Trenton, Ewing, Princeton, Hamilton, Cranbury, Lawrenceville, East Windsor and Hightstown have access to basic needs.
