In honor of 25 years of operation, International Paper’s Maysville Containerboard Mill awarded $25,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations.
Officials with the company said this is more than double what the facility awarded in 2016.
The grants were part of the anniversary celebration for the Maysville Mill. The mill hosted a family day in September for past and present team members along with their families.
“Investing in our community is important to International Paper as a company, our mill and to me personally,” said Doug Wadley, mill manager, Maysville Mill. “We are pleased to provide assistance to some of the great organizations providing services where we live and work. They are an incredible asset to our friends and neighbors here in Maysville.”
The mill hosted a luncheon for the recipients recently to learn more about their funded projects.
Recipients of the grants included: Operation Outreach for Straub Elementary School, Kentucky Gateway Museum Center, Women’s Crisis Center, Limestone Family YMCA, Community Care of Mason County (Food Bank), Tom Browning Boys and Girls Club and Maysville Community and Technical College.
International Paper’s Maysville Mill provides grants to the area community through its IP Foundation, which is focused on four signature causes: education, hunger and nutrition, health and wellness and disaster relief.
