Thank you CSAC Excess Insurance Authority for rolling out this
year with14,080 rolls! We are continually grateful for your
increase in donations! What you do takes a lot of work and
dedication, and because of your large donation we were able to
give more rolls this year than ever before. You are a prime
example of how to LIVE UNITED!
With Enterprise Rent-A-Car we continue to be impressed with their
commitment to grow their TP collection with one of a kind
activities! This year their efforts landed them in second place
with 23,700 rolls! Also, we want to give them a round of applause
that they were the top donor from our local companies that
donated this year. United Way staff enjoyed the pre-drive TP
festivities they had this year. They built a fantastic baseball
field out of TP – complete with a taped up TP baseball! They also
had a TP cake contest and BBQ.
We think you are truly spectacular Enterprise Rent-A-Car!
Charmin has landed as our
top toilet paper donor! As a surprise donation the brand
generously gave us 70,000 rolls of toilet paper! This is the most
toilet paper any one donor has ever provided in all five years.
We were shocked and thrilled to be contacted by them and to learn
of such a hefty donation.
Thank you Charmin for your overwhelming generosity! We hope
you join us next year, and we’re sure all our nonprofits agree!
Since they will be delivering it separately we do not have
any pictures to share.
Every year Intel has increased their donation to the drive
and this year they had an outstanding donation of 18,174!
During the month of June they hoarded TP in different departments
all for a big reveal and castle building contest on the day of
the drive. All the rolls managed to fill up an entire UPS truck
without room to spare.

Congratulations to Genworth for landing in the Top 10 for the
