The story of Cascades is, at heart, a story about a family with deep human values, about proactive individuals guided by a forward-looking vision.
Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibers. The Company employs 11,000 employees, who work in more than 90 production units located in North America and Europe. With its management philosophy, half a century of experience in recycling, and continuous efforts in research and development as driving forces, Cascades continues to deliver the innovative products that customers have come to rely on.
RMHC became one of their customers in June 2015. An employee at one of the Cascades production facilities in Eau Claire, WI reached out to the House after a family member stayed with us. When the opportunity to donate a semi-truck full of paper products arose, he immediately thought of our House. We were thrilled to accept this very generous donation of 30 pallets of toilet paper, paper towel and napkins. Since 2015, we have consistently exceeded 2,500 family stays per year. One can only imagine how many paper product we go through annually!
Fast forward to December 2017. We ran out of paper towel from the 2015 donation. After a quick phone call to Cascades, another semi-truck full of paper towels was on its way to us from their Eau Claire production facility. We could not do what we do without the support of a caring community near and far. We are incredibly grateful for their confidence in our mission to keep families together and promote the health and well-being of children.
