Sontara® Old Hickory Donates Over 800 Items to Children in Need

Social sustainability begins with a sense of community, and Jacob Holm takes pride in being a good neighbor. When the United Way of Middle Tennessee asked for help with their 2018 “Stuff the Bus” campaign, Sontara® employees stepped up. The campaign, which distributes donated school supplies to ensure at-risk students have the resources they need to start the school year, received 820 items from team members at our Old Hickory plant. 

“We have a lot of success with supply drives,” says Amanda Murrah, Human Resources Manager at the plant. “Our workforce is deeply dedicated to the community we live in, and this shows in their ongoing generosity. I’m continuously impressed. “
