Georgia-Pacific is doing everything possible to meet consumer and customer demand, which has increased as much as 40 percent due to stay-at-home orders from state and local governments. We are ensuring that necessary items such as paper towels, bath tissue and hand sanitizer are available across the U.S. We are doing so quickly and effectively with employee safety and consumer confidence at the forefront. Georgia-Pacific also is helping the communities in which it operates. We have donated thousands of N95 facemasks to hospitals across Georgia, Alabama and Massachusetts, and provided critical materials to Georgia Tech for producing more than 5,000 face shields for frontline medical workers. Our boxes are enabling an increase in e-commerce and customer shipments, our fluff pulp is being used in hygienic and filtration products, and our paperboard is helping protect food, pharmaceuticals and other essential goods. Georgia-Pacific also has a long-standing relationship with the disaster relief agency Convoy of Hope, which is using our donated products to support those hit especially hard by COVID-19.
Angel Soft and Quilted Northern brands shared new TV spots to help spread the word that bath tissue is still being made and shipped.
