The company also donated more than 260 books to the program.

Head Start is a national program that provides developmental and educational services to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, pregnant women and their families. Head Start and its community partners work with at-risk families to remove their barriers to success and to cultivate children’s social, physical, emotional, and cognitive development so they have the abilities necessary to succeed in school and life.

“Domtar is so grateful for the opportunity to help the incredible Marathon County Head Start Program make a difference in children’s lives,” said Domtar Corporate Responsibility Manager Heather Alverson Stowe in a news release. “Literacy is one of Domtar’s core corporate giving pillars, which is why it’s so important for us to foster a love of reading and to help put books in the hands of children in our local communities.”

Domtar’s book donation was made possible through the company’s partnership with First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides books to children in need.
