Helping hospice

Canuck Place is to receive an ongoing supply of paper towels, napkins and bath tissue products, thanks in part to the efforts of a Surrey resident.

Doug Saunders helped facilitate the donation as an employee of SCA, the global hygiene and tissue company that is providing the products to the Vancouver children’s hospice.

“Canuck Place stands out in our community as a world class facility and offers a very unique and inspiring service,” Saunders, senior territory manager in SCA’s B.C. operations, said in a release.

As part of the donation, SCA will work with Canuck Place during the year to provide environmentally conscious paper towel, tissue and napkin products, most of which contain 100 per cent recycled fiber.
