Pineland Paper Donates to The Mercy Ministries

Pineland Paper recently presented a $15,000 check to The Mercy Ministries, marking a significant contribution in a larger history of generosity. Years ago, Guy Branch of Pineland Paper Company initiated a practice of donating paper goods to The Mercy Ministries. Shortly thereafter, he established an annual golf tournament as a means of bringing together lifelong friends and business partners. During the inaugural tournament, The Mercy Ministries was chosen as a beneficiary of the raised funds, which included a $5,000 cash donation. However, the generosity didn't end there.
Some of the prizes awarded to the winning golf teams were paper products, prompting the teams to generously redirect these prizes to The Mercy Ministries. In addition to the $5,000 cash donation, The Mercy Ministries received over a year's worth of tissue and paper towels that year.
After Guy’s passing, a group of Guy’s friends and community members decided to get together and throw a party, play some golf and give money away to charitable causes, things Guy would love. To date, the tournament has contributed a total of $45,000 to The Mercy Ministries.
This year's sponsors, including Essity, Marcal, Handy Andy, McDaniel Supply Co., Ken and Faye Mosley, The Dumplin Shoppe – Mary Hill Dumplings, and Pineland Paper, exemplify the power of collaboration in doing good. The success of this event stands as a testament to what can be achieved when friends invite others to join in the pursuit of benevolence.
The Mercy Ministries extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in the 2023 L. Guyton Branch Memorial Golf Tournament.
