Even as the Altamaha Riverkeeper is bringing legal action against Rayonier for befouling the river with his contaminants, Jesup plant manager Jack Perrett was bragging about the good the organization does for the community during a grant breakfast Tuesday.
“Do all the good you can by all the means you can in all ways you can in all the places you can to all the people you can as long as you ever can,” the Jesup Rayonier mill’s general manager, Jack Perrett, said, quoting John Wesley, during opening remarks at the Rayonier Foundation’s annual grant breakfast Tuesday.
The Rayonier Foundation provided grants for 39 projects to 35 different local organizations during a breakfast at Sybil’s Restaurant.
The grants and a United Way contribution (including employee donations and a company match) totaled $275,000.
After Perrett’s welcoming, grantees partook of a buffet breakfast before receiving their grants.
After eating, manager of public affairs Kaylyn Padgett awarded the grants.
