We remember the impact Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had in our communities during and after the storms. We are more than ready to help support those affected by Hurricane Ike in their time of need
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
Sparkletts®, a bottled water company under the DS Waters brand, is working with state and local officials throughout the impacted coastal cities of Texas to provide safe drinking water to victims of Hurricane Ike that recently hit coastal Texas. The bottled water is being donated to large relief organizations and to small local community groups. Sparkletts is donating over 100,000 bottles of drinking water in a variety of container sizes to those in the impacted areas that are still in need of safe drinking water.
The bottled water company has been a key contributor by donating much needed bottled drinking water to support the efforts of organizations like the American Red Cross and numerous First Responder units. At the local level, Sparkletts bottled water company has authorized its managers to donate bottled water as needed within their regional communities and neighborhoods.
"Sparkletts has a long history in Texas and is deeply committed to our community. When the news came that Ike had changed its course and would impact the Texas communities, we took immediate action to help both our Associates and our fellow Texans," said Gil Gibson, Division President of Sparkletts, Texas. "Requests for bottled water donations come into our office every day, and we will continue to provide safe drinking water and support at all levels as it is needed during this difficult time. I can't thank our Associates enough for their tremendous dedication over the past few days."
Kentwood Springs, also a bottled water brand of DS Waters, has stepped in to assist in areas impacted by Ike by working with local government and municipalities to provide bottled water needs in Louisiana and neighboring Texas communities. "We remember the impact Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had in our communities during and after the storms.
