Nestlé Waters North America Supports Communities in Need

(Los Angeles, CA) – In an effort to support the firefighters and community members impacted by the Sand Canyon Fire in Santa Clarita, Nestlé Waters North America today donated 20 pallets (37,440 half-liter bottles) of Arrowhead ® Brand Mountain Spring Water to the Los Angeles chapter of the American Red Cross. The water will be provided to residents who have been evacuated and to the firefighters and other first responders who have been battling the fire for days.

“As Californians, we all want to do our part when a disaster of this magnitude impacts the community,” said Larry A. Lawrence, Natural Resource Manager for Nestlé’s Arrowhead brand in California. “We are proud to support our neighbors and first responders and to provide much needed water to those directly affected by the blaze.”

Nestlé Waters salutes the dedicated men and women who have been instrumental in helping those impacted by the fire and those who are making sure water gets to communities and residents in need.

”The American Red Cross relies heavily on the generous donations of individuals and corporations,” said Jon Myers, Director Communications and Marketing, American Red Cross Los Angeles Region. “Nestlé has been a valuable partner in our disaster relief efforts, providing pallets of water that go to help victims of disaster such as the Sand Fire. We are grateful to the Nestlé team who have demonstrated a strong commitment to the local community and for their continued relationship with the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region as we serve those affected by wildfires.”
