Savannah River Mill Homepage

At Georgia-Pacific’s Savannah River Mill, we strive to be a valued member of the Effingham County community.

From United Way and the Effingham County school system to the local chamber of commerce and Rotary clubs, we’ve built strong partnerships over the years that have allowed us to make a difference in the community our mill calls home.  On any given week, you can find us serving as Junior Achievement classroom instructors, parade team volunteers, United Way Sponsored Associates and mill campaign team members, board members, Science Olympiad team coaches and as volunteers for other dynamic programs.  With approximately 40 percent of our workforce living in Effingham County, we’re helping those who are part of our GP family, too.

We consider it a privilege to be part of the efforts that help to make Effingham County a better place to live, work and play…
