ICPF Works Around COVID Pandemic, Continues Donations To Universities Though some deliveries have suffered minor delays during the pandemic, the International Corrugated Pack- aging Foundation (ICPF) continues to provide equipment and grants to its partner universities. Recent equipment and financial awards have been provided or committed to Rutgers, Western Michigan Uni- versity, Millersville University, Indiana State, North Caroli- na State, University of Texas - Arlington, Cal Poly, Virginia Tech, and Lewis Clark State College.
