My family donates quite often to good causes and this time I thought it would be a good idea to involve my coworkers”, Silva explains. So along with his family, he organized a material donation among UPM Raflatac employees. </p><p>The materials for the children were collected for one week, and the donated clothes, pants, t-shirts, shoes, blankets, milk, detergents, personal hygiene products and toys were delivered to the orphanage.</p><h2>Positive actions generate positive energy</h2><p><strong>Henrique Campioni</strong>, Terminal Manager, UPM Raflatac Jaguariúna says it is important to create a better community and make the world a better place with positive actions.</p><p>“Especially caring for children by providing education, respect and love is important and it has long-lasting impact on the community. This is so simple an action that everybody can do, but sometimes we just wait for other people to do it for us. We believe that positive actions generate more positive actions, and we can make the difference.” </p><p><img src="http://assets.upmraflatac.com/News%20images/2018/bioforesite_logo.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /></p><p><em>UPM Raflatac aims to label a smarter future by improving the sustainability performance of its production sites through the Biofore Site<em>™ </em>concept.
