ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Rio Rancho firefighters can rest assured that they won’t get caught short on a visit to the potty over the next year.
Cincinnati, Ohio-based Proctor & Gamble, the maker of Charmin toilet paper, is donating nearly 50,000 rolls of their household-name product to firehouses in every state. That works out to 960 rolls per firehouse, or a year’s supply of toilet paper for 20 firefighters, according to the company.
The Rio Rancho Fire Rescue Department took delivery of its share – 11 boxes of the soft white stuff – on Wednesday.
They will be stored at the department’s administrative headquarters on Stephanie Road and distributed to the city’s seven fire stations as needed, Fire Inspector Jessica Duron-Martinez said.
The donation is part of the Charmin Relief Project, “which provides a better bathroom experience anytime, anywhere,” the company’s news release said. “Since firehouses often serve as a second home for many firefighters, Charmin wants to bring the comforts of home to these everyday heroes,” the release said.
