Paper with Purpose

As part of their Paper with Purpose commitment to sustainability, Boise Paper looks for opportunities to give back to the communities their employees and customers call home. In their support of Reach Out and Read, Boise Paper was a key sponsor of the new website, which was launched in October 2019, and a supporter of the 30th Anniversary Leadership Conference that was held at the Boston Public Library. Currently, they are partnering with local Reach Out and Read affiliates across the country to sponsor book drives and raise awareness of the program in underserved communities.

Boise Paper’s values closely align with those of Reach Out and Read, and we are grateful for their commitment to the children and families we serve. “Research points to the importance of early childhood literacy and how reading books improves brain development, even in the earliest years of a child’s life,” said Paul LeBlanc, vice president of paper for PCA. “That’s why we are tremendously excited to announce our sponsorship of Reach Out and Read.”

Reach Out and Read looks forward to the continued partnership with Boise Paper. “We are committed to empowering parents everywhere and giving children the opportunity to share the joy of being read to aloud in the arms of someone who loves them,” said Erin Henry, chief development officer of Reach Out and Read. “And we could not do that without the dedicated support of generous donors. We are thrilled when a corporate partner, like Boise Paper, sees value in what we’re doing and joins us on this journey.”
