Georgia-Pacific is teaming up with the PGA tour and Rebuilding Together in the Healthy Homes Tour. Designed to highlight the influence organizations, companies and communities exert when they band together to ensure the safety and shelter of those with families, the elderly and disabled, the Rebuilding Together organization has benefited from Georgia-Pacific’s support since 1992.
"Rebuilding Together appreciates the efforts of Georgia-Pacific and the PGA Tour to build awareness of the need for healthier homes and to do something about it," said Patricia Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Rebuilding Together.
There are currently 24 million low-income homeowners in the U.S. This figure is anticipated to inflate to a staggering 28.5 million by the year 2010. Many families are placed in a compromising situation that sees them required to make a choice between food on the table and a roof that doesn’t leak. The goal of Rebuilding Together is to ensure that families don’t have to make these choices, and to empower homeowners with the ability to perform basic home repairs and maintenance needed to have a healthy home.
Georgia-Pacific has sponsored the program since 1999.
