We remember the help we received from neighboring communities during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The least we could do is make a bottled water donation to the Iowa flood victims. We are pleased to be able to help those affected by this national disaster

Kentwood Springs®, a DS Waters bottled water company, is working with officials from Terrebonne Parish in Louisiana to provide bottled water to victims of the recent flood that hit the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area. The water will go to the People Helping People Iowa Flood Victims Relief Fund and will be distributed to flood victims through Serve the City, a small non-profit in Cedar Rapids, IA, who will be working with the Red Cross to help distribute the water to the community. Kentwood is donating an additional 1,050 one gallon bottles of water to aid the Iowa relief.

"We remember the help we received from neighboring communities during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The least we could do is make a bottled water donation to the Iowa flood victims. We are pleased to be able to help those affected by this national disaster," says Glen Sanders, General Manager of Kentwood Springs in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Kentwood Springs associates are supporting the Iowa flood victims by providing bottled water in coordination with Terrebonne Parish city councilmen Pete Lambert and Paul Labat in Houma, LA. Approximately 4,830 gallons of artesian bottled water from Kentwood's bottling facility in Kentwood, LA will be donated. The first trailer load will be delivered on July 01, 2008, and a second delivery is expected in one week. For more information, please visit http://www.kentwoodsprings.com.
