When we think of the holidays, we think of Care. As part of our commitment to caring for our local communities, this Thanksgiving, Essity North America is again donating Thanksgiving meals to people in need within each region of our North American operations.

It’s important to ensure that people in the areas where we live and work get the essentials they need, especially during the holiday season. To help, Essity is donating Thanksgiving dinners on behalf of North America employees to local charities in each community where we operate - for a total of over 12,000 donated meals!
