Millcraft Welcomes Holiday Season by Donating More than $88,000 
to Midwest-based Non-Profits through Its “buy & give” Program

Cleveland, Ohio – November 23, 2015 - Millcraft is welcoming the 2015 holiday season this week by donating more than $88,000 to eight Midwest-based non-profit organizations through its "buy & give” business paper purchasing program. 

Millcraft’s "buy & give” initiative offers businesses the opportunity to support locally-designated charities through routine purchases of "buy & give” brand office paper. For every carton of paper purchased, Millcraft donates $1 to the designated beneficiary in the purchaser’s geographic region.   Millcraft partners with Domtar – a core mill supplier – to market "buy & give” multi-purpose paper throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania.

"buy & give” was introduced to the Northeast Ohio market in 2011 with one inaugural beneficiary - the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital.  In 2014, the company decided to expand the program throughout their six state distribution area, allowing each Millcraft division to select its own non-profit beneficiary to support:

“Business is personal.  As a company, we want to be part of the communities that we serve,” says Travis Mlakar, Millcraft’s president.  There are so many under-served and deserving organizations doing incredible work throughout the communities in which we live and work. This is a way for us to make a difference, starting in our own backyards.  Copy paper is the ultimate commodity; everyone uses it. But it doesn’t have to be a throwaway purchase. When utilized for a greater cause, it truly can have a widespread, lasting impact…as demonstrated with the funds we’ve been able to present this week. I couldn’t be more excited about the program’s growth and proud to see the results of our efforts.”
