Toilet paper company Charmin donated a year supply of toilet paper to the Rio Rancho Fire Department on Wednesday as part of their national "Relief Project."
Charmin asked consumers to share stories on their social media pages about firehouses that were experiencing sub-par bathroom conditions. The brand then picked one in each state that could use the extra support.
RRFD's motto, "Protecting Your Family," resonated with Charmin.
"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," a Charmin representative wrote in a statement.
Rio Rancho firefighters now have a stockpile of 960 rolls for the year.
