Georgia-Pacific Packaging in Mt. Olive donated $5,000 to assist the City of Mt. Olive to rebuild a new city hall and police station after the facilities were damaged by a tornado earlier this year.
Michele Hammon, Environmental, Safety and Health Manager at Georgia-Pacific and a resident of Mt. Olive reached out to see how their organization could help the City of Mt. Olive.
As part of its role to facilitate economic development in the area, the Macoupin Economic Development Partnership is helping collect funds on behalf of the city for the rebuilding effort.
The EF2 tornado ripped through Mt. Olive on May 20 damaging business, homes and downing trees and power lines.
