GP PRO and Consumer Products Reimagine Opportunities in the Community

May 3, 2021 10:30 AM ET

The Georgia-Pacific Buddy program is an employee-volunteer tutoring initiative that began over 20 years ago. The program was established to enhance the academic skills of students at M. Agnes Jones (MAJ) Elementary in the Atlanta Public Schools. Like many other in-person initiatives, the GP Buddy program was suspended due to COVID-19​.

The new superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools (APS), Dr. Lisa Herring is excited about continuing GP's longstanding partnership with APS and MAJ. She and her team are “reimagining" opportunities for GP and other corporate partners to make meaningful contributions to APS in these “new normal" times. GP Community Affairs continues to partner with APS and MAJ to reimagine what our employee engagement could look like in the future.

GP PRO and Consumer Products created a perfect 2021 partnership opportunity.  For their 2021 National Sales Conference, a chainsaw artist was commissioned to showcase her expertise as entertainment for the group. The end goal was to donate this exceptional work of art to MAJ. 

Check out the significance of the GP-MAJ partnership and the incredible piece of art in the video.
