Kruger Products is donating personal care packages of tissue products to more than 1,200 front-line health-care workers at L’Hôpital de Gatineau today as part of a program recognizing their work during the fight against COVID-19.

“Our team of 400 employees wants to recognize the health-care heroes who put their lives on the line to protect us every day,” says Daniel Morneau, general manager at the Gatineau Mills, which is located in the Ottawa-Gatineau region of Ontario and Quebec.

The delivery is part of the tissue manufacturer’s #RollingItForward campaign with Mercedes-Benz Canada. The initiative is bringing bath tissue, paper towel and facial tissue to several hospitals in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver using a fleet of more than 20 vans.
