960 Rolls Toilet Paper Gifted To Small Town Firemen

We've Heard It All Now - Toilet Paper Given To Small Town Firehouse
OKEECHOBEE, FL. -- Today, as a part of the Charmin Relief Project, Charmin is donating 960 rolls of toilet paper, a year's supply for 20 firemen, to the Okeechobee Fire Department in Okeechobee, FL. 

Charmin says it is part of a nationwide donation to one fire house in every state – or nearly 50,000 rolls of toilet paper to 50 firehouses in 50 states.

The City Fire Department was formed in 1916 and its volunteers have been chartered since 1915. Until 1978, The City Fire Department was the sole fire protection agency for all of Okeechobee County. The Okeechobee City Fire Department consists of twelve paid and 12 volunteer firefighters.

Charmin recently asked consumers to share stories via Facebook and Twitter of firehouses in their communities that were experiencing sub-par bathroom conditions and in need of relief. The brand then picked one in each state that could use the extra support.

Charmin says America’s firefighters put their behinds on the line day in and day out, to keep their communities safe, and they wanted to do something to help this much loved but often underfunded group of public servants.
