Charmin donates firefighter toilet paper
The company says that 960 rolls constitute “a year supply for 20 firefighters.”The company solicited applications on its Facebook page, although it received few responses from Oregon.
Fire Chief Bret Putman said he got a surprise call from the company asking whether he would accept the donation.
“I said ‘sure,’” he told the News-Register. “ Everything’s expensive; anytime you can save a penny, is a penny saved.”
He said he doesn’t know how the company selected Dayton.
A company representative declined to say.
“We heard stories of firehouses across the country that could use a little help due to insufficient funds or other constraints,” said Scott Mautz, Regional Brand Director. “We want to help the brave men and women who put their behinds on the line day-in and day-out for other America’s firefighters. Charmin is committed to giving people a more enjoyable bathroom experience — no matter where they are.”
In addition to the donation, Charmin will select five firehouses across the nation that will receive a bathroom mini-makeover to transform homely to homey and pull in elements inspired from firefighters’ own homes. The Charmin Relief Project has a rich history of helping firehouses and, since 2012, has donated more than 130,000 rolls of toilet paper including previous donations in Moonachie, New Jersey, and Detroit, Michigan.
