A Georgia company is coming to the rescue of residents who didn't manage to snag any toilet paper before it flew off the shelves earlier this month.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic that has infected nearly 200,000 people and killed more than 7,800 around the world, one of the first household products to fall prey to global panic-buying was toilet paper.
But the Atlanta-based marketing firm Trevelino/Keller has stepped in to make sure no resident is left behind. The company's co-founder, Genna Keller, told all employees to work from home, meaning that the 1,000 rolls of toilet paper in the firm's offices would go unused.
So she and her fellow employees decided to set up a "Toilet Paper Toss" drive-thru, where people could drive up to the firm's parking lot and have an individually wrapped toilet-paper roll tossed into their car.
Videos posted on social media show the gloved employees standing outside the parking lot and staying several feet away from the cars while they toss the rolls in.
A post on Trevelino/Keller's Facebook page said the company had depleted its entire toilet paper supply, but was asking other companies, schools, and even churches to donate theirs.
"In times like this, it's important that you do what you can and maybe even provide a moment of levity," Keller told CNN.
