Kruger Products, one of Canada’s leading tissue products manufacturer, has launched a national #RollingItForward program to support the country’s frontline healthcare workers and citizens in need.

The company delivered the first in a series of much-needed care packages to frontline healthcare professionals at several hospitals across Montreal last week and will branch to Toronto and Vancouver “over the next few weeks.”

Kruger’s care packages include tissue products from their brands, Cashmere, Purex, SpongeTowels, and Scotties.

Kruger Products is also making a tissue product donation to Food Banks Canada and a financial contribution to support frontline healthcare workers. “There’s never been a more important time in Canadian history to step up and give back,” said Dino Bianco, chief executive officer of Kruger Products, in a release. “We are so grateful to the heroic frontline healthcare workers across Canada who are putting their lives on the line to keep our country safe and healthy.”
