7 years ago

HOULTON, Maine — The Safety Committee at Louisiana-Pacific Corp.’s engineered wood products mill sponsored a food drive during its annual “100 Days of Summer” safety program.

The safety program is designed to help employees focus on safety during the summer months, when distractions are at their peak. The mill incorporated the food drive into the program as a way of helping the community, as well.

“The winter months are some of the toughest of times, when food is at its scarcest for many families struggling in our community,” Human Resources and Safety Manager Ryan Bushey said.

The mill teamed up with Catholic Charities of Maine for the drive. In addition to several totes and cases of food collected from employees, the mill purchased $250 worth of food from Andy’s IGA, which in turn donated another $150 worth of food.

“We appreciate the help from Andy’s IGA and all of our employees in making this drive a success,” Bushey said.
