PEOPLE

Dear Glatfelter,

I am a Tiffin Cavalier. I love to learn. We all thank you for doing everything you did for us. I love the shirts.

Love, Heaven F.

P.S. Hope you have a great day.

Chillicothe, Ohio, is a community rich in history with a small town feel. Home to one of Glatfelter’s largest operation facilities, Chillicothe is commonly referred to as a mill town, as many residents are employed with Glatfelter. Glatfelter could simply provide the jobs, and cut the checks—the end of a typical corporate story.

But Glatfelter is more than just a corporation: Glatfelter is PEOPLE.

Employees, families, communities. Glatfelter recognizes our responsibility to contribute to the betterment of the communities in which we operate and the world in which we live.

In 2014, Glatfelter began “Adopt Tiffin Elementary School”, a school located in the heart of Chillicothe. As Glatfelter employees began greeting students at the doors—every Friday morning,—high-fives and smiles of recognition began to take place. For “Spirit Day”, Glatfelter outfitted the entire school with t-shirts, free of charge. Gift bags at Halloween, note pads for writing, and helping the students with their science fair projects…

Today, students at Tiffin Elementary don’t think of Glatfelter as just some company their family members work for. The students and teachers wear their t-shirts once a month in recognition, proudly displaying their part in our Glatfelter community.

Dear Tiffin Elementary students,

Thank you for your kind letters. We appreciate them greatly. Mostly, we appreciate you and your families. You are our Glatfelter PEOPLE, and we thank you.

Sincerely,

Glatfelter

P.S. We hope you, Heaven F., and all of your schoolmates have a great day, too!
