The numbers are starting to roll in for bottled water donation to the Atlanta floods.
5,000 gallons is what we’ve seen from Nestlé Waters North America. The water was delivered to the American Red Cross’ relief operation warehouse in Forest Park, Georgia, for distribution to communities. From a press release:
“Deer Park strives to be there in times of emergency,” said Alex McIntosh, director of corporate citizenship. “In 2008, Nestlé Waters delivered more than 2.7 million bottles of water to citizens and relief workers affected by natural disasters and emergencies, and our 8,500 employees are proud to donate their time and bottled water products when communities are in need.”
“We’re thankful for the support of Nestlé Waters North America,” said Lauri Rhinehart, vice president of development operations for the American Red Cross. “Through their donation of water, the American Red Cross will be able to meet the needs of the community.”
