GP donates supplies to local schools

March 21, 2011

Each year, continued cuts in education budgets have forced teachers to spend hundreds of their own dollars just to keep their rooms stocked with essential classroom supplies, like tablets, tape, glue and markers.
This year, employees at Georgia-Pacific's Sweetwater gypsum plant are helping. They collected and donated boxes of school supplies to J.P. Cowen, Southeast Elementary, East Ridge Elementary and Highland ISD. In addition to the boxes of supplies given by employees, the company also donated cases of other needed products including its office paper, paper towels and tissue products.
