Books hold a special place in our hearts, in our business and, we believe, in children’s hands.
That is why Domtar created its Powerful Pages program—to promote literacy by providing books to children who may not otherwise have access to a rich library of stories.
This takes many forms, usually through partnerships with other nonprofits that are widely recognized for their dedication to literacy. Also in 2016, many of our Pulp and Paper division vendors joined us in a special initiative focused on elementary schools.
