Senator Richard Blumenthal & Nestlé Waters CEO Fernando Mercé
On Thursday, August 10th, some 500 Nestlé Waters North America employees joined other Nestlé companies in the U.S. for #NestléCares, a national day of service honored at more than 150 community events across 47 states.
In Stamford, Nestlé Waters partnered with the Student Conservation Association (SCA), Project WET and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to increase awareness of water conservation, sustainability and ways to care for the environment. Joining Nestlé Waters President and CEO Fernando Mercé at the Stamford Boys and Girls Club Event was U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).
“Project WET is a positive way to help educate kids about water conservation and sustainability--- an incredibly important issue that affects our environment. Today’s event, led by Nestlé on their national day of volunteering, will help bring our communities together in an effort to promote a better future for our planet. I applaud Nestlé Waters North America for giving back to the community,” said Senator Blumenthal.
“Nestlé Cares Day is an important reminder that we have a responsibility to give back to the communities where we live and work and help protect the environment,” said Nestlé Waters North America’s President and CEO Fernando Mercé. “At Nestlé, our purpose is to enhance the quality of life and contribute to a healthier future. Today is an opportunity for us to come together to bring our purpose to life and to make a meaningful difference in our communities.”
