UPDATE: ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Last week, you may recall the Rockford Rescue mission was in dire need of toilet paper.
As luck would have it, an employee at Malcolm Eaton Enterprises saw our announcement and today they donated more than 3,000 rolls to the homeless shelter. Malcolm Eaton is a developmental training center in Freeport which actually makes and distributes toilet paper. They say they were more than happy to help out a fellow non-profit.
"Volunteer time and donations can be difficult to come by, so it's more important than ever for the non-profits to work together and help each other through these tough times,” said Brian Babcock with Malcolm Eaton.
