On September 21, NWNA joined three members of the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) to donate a total of 100,000 bottles of water to the Tulare Office of Emergency Services (OES) in Tulare County, California. As part of this effort, NWNA donated a truckload of Arrowhead Brand Mountain Spring Water, which is the equivalent of approximately 38,013 .5 L bottles or 1,584 cases.
The convoy of bottled water will support residents of drought stricken areas in East Porterville and Visalia. Assembly Member Devon Mathis presented NWNA with a Certificate of Appreciation for the truckload.
Chris Hogan, Vice President of the IBWA, was given a proclamation signed by the Board of Supervisors in recognition of the industry’s effort. “I want to again thank you for your support of and involvement in this important event,” said Chris.
Additionally, NWNA received its own proclamation from the OES in Tulare County for the company’s ongoing contribution to their relief efforts. NWNA began donating bottled water to the community in 2014, and to date has donated more than 11,000 cases of bottled water in 2015.
