ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany Procter and Gamble employees can be proud of the attention one of their creations is gathering as the company promotes food banks across the nation.

Bounty has created a larger-than-life shopping cart that will transport a giant six-foot replica of the new 'Bounty Huge Roll.' 

The giant display won't be stopping in Albany, but local store markets ranging from Massachusetts to Texas can have their photos taken with the Bounty Huge Roll replica and will receive product coupons.

Bounty will donate up to $50,000 worth of Bounty paper towels to local food banks by becoming a "fan" of the newly-launched Bounty page on the Facebook social networking site.

Bounty will donate one roll of paper towels for every fan who joins, to each of five local food banks, one per market, up to $10,000 for a total of $50,000 worth of product.

At each stop, consumers who come out to see the Bounty shopping cart will be able to pick up coupons for the new Bounty Huge Roll to test in their own homes.

Procter and Gamble employs about 900 workers at the Albany plant, which makes Bounty, Charmin tissue, and other products sold by P&G.

In early 2010, P&G reached 4th largest corporation in the US by market capitalization, surpassed only by Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, and Walmart.

It is 10th in Fortune's Most Admired Companies list (as of 2007).
