How A Local Nonprofit Is Helping To Change The World One Box Of Tissue At A Time
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Aug. 17, 2017 – PRLog — My Day Counts, a nonprofit 501c3 charity in Anaheim California has been hard at work quietly helping the Kimberly-Clark Corporation in achieving their 2022 global sustainability strategy as well as assisting the Corporation in delivering their vision TO LEAD THE WORLD IN ESSENTIALS FOR A BETTER LIFE.
How is this local nonprofit charity who provides life enhancing training programs and services to over 600 adults with disabilities each day been doing business with a worldwide superpower like Kimberly-Clark for over a decade? The answer may surprise you.
Kimberly-Clark needed an efficient way to separate the cardboard box surrounding the tissue inside of their already packaged Kleenex brand of tissue after the product was not being sold for various reasons including damage to the outside of the box. This after waste product then needed to be separated and recycled to be put back into production for new products.
Over the years we have become very efficient in what we do through automation and training” said Michael Galliano, CEO at My Day Counts
“They (Kimberly-Clark) needed to recycle their damaged products and we had a local warehouse and needed to provide job training for people with disabilities. It was a natural fit for us and has become a very important part of what we do here.” Said Michael Galliano, CEO at My Day Counts. “We had been doing this for a long time when we learned about Kimberly-Clarks Global Sustainability Strategy and saw how the separation/recycling work we do for them here at our location it is in complete alignment with their Vision on so many levels. We were so excited to share this story our employees with disabilities and incorporate pieces of it into our work training program.”
“Today our employees know that their work has a bigger purpose and they are part of something much larger than what we are doing here. Today this contract (with Kimberly-Clark) provides over 200 part time jobs every year for people with disabilities.”
