Kruger Products is launching a national program to support Canada’ frontline health-care workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

The tissue manufacturer’s #RollingItForward campaign will donate bath tissue, paper towel and facial tissue to several hospitals in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver over the next few weeks.

The first delivery was Apr. 6 in Montreal. The company is partnering with Mercedes-Benz Canada to deliver the products using a fleet of more than 20 Sprinter and Metris vans.

In addition, Kruger Products is donating tissue products to Food Banks Canada, and a financial contribution to support frontline health-care workers.

“We are so grateful to the heroic frontline health-care workers across Canada who are putting their lives on the line to keep our country safe and healthy,” says Dino Bianco, chief executive officer for Kruger Products. “We are also very concerned for the many Canadians in desperate need and are committed to helping Canada’s food banks make a difference.”

The company is encouraging Canadians to support their communities in any way they can.

Kruger Products manufactures tissue products with more than 2,000 employees and manufacturing plants in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.
