Kruger’s contribution to the project consists in supplying the bus that will be used as the mobile clinic, as well as the necessary resources to operate it.

The mobile clinic will be touring the Maurice and Centre-du-Québec areas to reach more vulnerable people, as well as municipalities and workers at their place of work, including some Kruger employees from its two Trois-Rivières facilities. They will have opportunities to use the service depending on the clinic’s itinerary and booking availability, as established by the CIUSSS which will manage the clinic.

COMMITTED TO THE WELL-BEING OF OUR COMMUNITIES

Kruger’s contribution to the project is in line with the numerous initiatives the Company has supported over the past twelve months through its facilities across North America. It stems from its commitment to ensure not only the well-being of its employees and their families, but also the communities they call home.

“As soon as there was a call for business to help and support the vaccination efforts, we raised our hands at Kruger. It was only natural for us to take part in this collective effort and we are very happy to have helped make this project a reality,” said Mr. Gino Lévesque, Senior Vice President, Kruger Packaging, at the mobile clinic launch event.
