In response to the devastating fires in California, Sparkletts, a bottled water company and affiliate of DS Waters, has stepped in to help. The company has donated thousands of bottles of water to the people and animals evacuated from the area, as well to as those that are fighting the fires directly. Sparkletts is also working with its employees to ensure their safety and to support those who may have lost their homes and belongings.
Among the many water donations made by Sparkletts, the company delivered cases of water to the largest evacuation center for people displaced by the fires in California, Qualcomm Stadium, as well as other evacuation sites in the Southwest region. The company also donated water to the Red Cross, the California Highway Patrol, and the California Department of Forestry.
