Domtar Fort Mill enjoys a day with Palmetto School Students

A group of Domtar interns and employees recently spent their day at the Palmetto School at the Children's Attention Home, where they read with the children, helped them with various art projects, and played some basketball.
The Palmetto School, in partnership with the Children's Attention Home, provides a safe educational experience for abused, neglected, abandoned or homeless children. Many of these children are absent in traditional schools because of injury, illness or lack of parental support.  They often arrive at the Palmetto School significantly below grade level in all academic areas and are able to catch up with help from the school, which focuses on the needs of each individual child.
