Canfor Donates $10,000 to Wills Memorial Hospital

At Canfor, it’s important that we are a valued contributor in the communities where we operate and we want our neighbors and employees to feel that their community is stronger because Canfor is part of it. One of our many Canfor communities includes Washington, Georgia where we operate a laminating plant.

In early January, Canfor presented a $10,000 check to the Wills Memorial Hospital, a 25-bed acute care hospital in the community. This hospital is the only means of local emergency care in the local area; the next nearest hospital is 90 minutes away in either Athens or Atlanta.

We are proud to make a significant donation to this hospital that serves our Canfor employees who live in Washington and all local community members. The donation was well received by the hospital with Susan D. Pope, Wills Memorial Hospital HR/Community Relations Director, sharing, “We are thrilled by the generous support offered by Canfor!”
