Nestle donates to Project Water – The Wellington Advertiser

Nestlé Waters Canada has donated $35,000 worth of bottled water to Project Water, a volunteer organization that distributes bottled water to those living on Greater Toronto Area streets who suffer from dehydration during the summer months.

Project Water will distribute bottled water to more than 160 social service agencies over the next few months that work with the homeless and needy in Toronto and across the GTA, including the Salvation Army, the Canadian Red Cross, Street Health Bus, St. John Ambu­lance, the Scott Mission and the YWCA.

Nestlé Waters Canada delivered 209,664 bottles of water to Project Water last week.

Since 2006, the Company has donated more than 644,064 bottles of water – valued at $110,000 – to the organization.

According to Project Water founder Jody Steinhauer, more homeless persons die on the streets in the summer due to dehydration than in the winter due to hypothermia.
