Community Outreach

At PCA, we believe that supporting our communities goes hand in hand with supporting our customers and our people.

Helping to Build Stronger Communities

We are committed to making the world a better place by providing grassroots causes with the resources they need to strengthen and build communities.

Pulp and Paper Education

Each year, our containerboard mill in Counce, Tennessee, donates to the Pulp and Paper Foundation Fund at North Carolina State’s College of Natural Resources. The donations fund programming, renovations to the study spaces and laboratories, and scholarships to pay for tuition and books. The mill works with six local high schools to promote the Pulp and Paper Foundation scholarship opportunities and to share information with students about how to apply.

Local Volunteerism

PCA teams and employees volunteer their time in a multitude of ways. From hosting STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) events to building homes with Habitat for Humanity, collecting items for The Red Cross and packing meals for Feed My Starving Children, they are always looking for ways to support and give back to the local communities in which they live.
