SCA's Christmas Gifts to Cancer Research Foundation, BRIS and Médecins Sans Frontiers

STOCKHOLM, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SCA's Christmas gift to the company's employees in 2019 was a donation of SEK 1.5 MSEK to three recipients. Cancer Research Foundation Northern Sweden received the largest donation.

SCA's employees decided how the donation was to be divided between the three recipients by voting for the three alternatives on the company's intranet. As a result, Cancer Research Foundation Northern Sweden will receive SEK 875,000, BRIS - Children's Rights in Society gets SEK 346.000 and Médecins sans frontiers/Doctors Without Borders gets SEK 278.000.

The donations are being transferred to the three organizations with warm greetings for a happy new 2020 from SCA's employees.
