HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Charmin is providing some toilet paper relief on behalf of one of Ohio's newest million-dollar lottery winners.

Regina Jackson has vivid memories of the aid received from Reach Out Lakota when she was out of work for seven months in 2008. The nonprofit organization provides food, clothing and other necessities to the needy in Butler County in southwest Ohio.

Jackson recalled after her recent lottery win having to ration toilet paper — only two rolls a month. So she wanted to donate cash to the nonprofit for toilet paper.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/WdfHAg) that Procter & Gamble Co. executives saw her comments and will donate 5,000 Charmin rolls. Reach Out Lakota gave out 5,500 rolls last year. That mean's Jackson's $5,000 donation will go to food and clothing instead.
