Georgia-Pacific employees are giving thanks this holiday season by giving back to those in need in the community. Employees at the Camden Complex and Corrigan Plywood filled more than 200 shopping bags with all the ingredients to prepare a Thanksgiving meal as part of the annual Polk County Sheriff’s Department Holiday Food Drive.      

“Georgia-Pacific employees in Camden and Corrigan have been providing support for our neighbors in need for the last several years,” said Yana Ogletree, Georgia-Pacific Public Affairs Manager. “Millions of Americans aren’t able to provide a holiday meal to their families and many of them are located right here in Polk County.  Georgia-Pacific employees are pleased to be able to offer this gift to our neighbors.”

The sheriff’s department is in the process of distributing the donations to those in need.  For more information about the food drive, please contact the Polk County Sheriff’s Department.
