The International Paper Bogalusa Mill held its annual food drive for the Bogalusa Help Center on Thursday, Nov. 18, while distributing holiday hams to mill employees and retirees.

Employees donated 12 cases of food and $1,670 in cash donations. Earlier in the year, the mill held a T-shirt sale that raised an additional $1,382 for the Bogalusa Help Center, raising the total donation to $3,052.

Extra hams not claimed by employees will also go to the food bank.

“The Bogalusa Mill supports the Bogalusa Help Center’s efforts to make sure every family in our community has a holiday meal on the table this Christmas,” said Kalisa Hyman, mill communications manager. “Our generous team members have helped to ensure that happens.”
