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:
Cleveland: The Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital
Cincinnati: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (
Columbus: Nationwide Children’s Hospital (
Dayton: Hospice of Dayton (
Detroit: C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital/University of Michigan Health System (
Ft. Wayne: Turnstone (
Indianapolis: Make a Wish – Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana (
- Louisville: Blessings in a Back Pack ( www.blessingsinabackpack.org)
“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.”
