(DAYTON) - Today, as a part of the Charmin Relief Project, Charmin is donating 960 rolls, which is a year supply of toilet paper for 20 firemen, to the Dayton Fire District in Dayton, OR. It is part of a nationwide donation to one fire house in every state – that’s nearly 50,000 rolls of toilet paper to 50 firehouses in 50 states.

Charmin recently asked consumers to share stories via Facebook and Twitter of firehouses in their communities that were experiencing sub-par bathroom conditions and in need of relief. The brand then picked one in each state that could use the extra support.

Charmin says America’s firefighters put their behinds on the line day in and day out, to keep their communities safe, and they wanted to do something to help this much loved but often underfunded group of public servants.

Charmin is donating nearly 50,000 rolls of toilet paper to firehouses in every state. Each firehouse will receive 960 rolls, which is a year supply of toilet paper for 20 firefighters.

As part of the Charmin Relief Project, which provides a better bathroom experience anytime, anywhere, Charmin asked consumers to share stories of firehouse bathrooms with sub-par conditions or in need of relief. Since firehouses often serve as a second home for many firefighters, Charmin wants to bring the comforts of home to these everyday heroes.

“We heard stories of firehouses across the country that could use a little help due to insufficient funds or other constraints,” said Scott Mautz, Regional Brand Director.

"We want to help the brave men and women who put their behinds on the line day in and day out for others- America’s firefighters. Charmin is committed to giving people a more enjoyable bathroom experience – no matter where they are."

“My firehouse is my home away from home and where my extended family lives in good times and bad,” said Chris Smith with the North Cumberland Fire Department in Rhode Island.

“It is awesome to know that Charmin cares enough not only to think about us, but also to try and make us more comfortable. In really hard times, our firehouse serves to keep our tax payer family safe too, especially when they have lost their first home. Helping us helps them when they need it most.”

In addition to the donation, Charmin will select five firehouses across the nation that will receive a bathroom mini-makeover to transform homely to homey and pull in elements inspired from firefighters own homes.

The Charmin Relief Project has a rich history of helping firehouses and since 2012, has donated more than 130,000 rolls of toilet paper including previous donations in Moonachie, New Jersey and Detroit, Michigan. For a full list of the 50 states receiving donations, visit CharminRelief.com.

Charmin launched CharminRelief.com for consumers to “enjoy the go” by entering a sweepstakes to win weekly and monthly prizes and a grand prize bathroom makeover. On the site, people can see a rolling count of how many people the Charmin Relief Project has helped, which is over 647,000 people and counting.

And all this time, mostly because of their ads, I had thought that Charmin was a punk-ass outfit. How wrong I was! Here's two thumbs up (in the right place) for Charmin! Let's here it for this great company that has made a clean sweep on behalf of our firemen heroes. If I ever had any doubts about their giving back to the community,, they're now on a roll - and their generosity wipes the slate clean. I mean, no shit.
