COVID-19 negatively impacted many small business owners in the U.S., including many of our ReadyRefresh® customers. After a challenging several months, businesses began reopening their doors this summer.
Our ReadyRefresh Service Representatives (RSRs) were happy to see customers, whom they’ve come to know well, getting back to business. They wanted to do something to lend support to these customers who had been through so much.
That’s when ReadyRefresh took action and launched an initiative called “Welcome Back to Business” to help the many small businesses as they reopened. During a four-week period in August and September 2020, our RSRs donated nearly 300,000 bottles of water to small businesses along their routes.
Back in May 2020, our RSRs led a similar initiative – donating more than 275,000 bottles of water to nurses, doctors, police officers, firefighters, delivery persons, and many others along their routes working in essential services.
At ReadyRefresh, we are committed to Creating Shared Value in the communities where we live and operate everyday – and times of crisis are no exception. During the pandemic, our RSRs have been proud to continue bringing healthy hydration to all of our customers.
Whether delivering healthy hydration along their usual routes or donating water to small businesses, essential workers and others in need, at ReadyRefresh, we’re working to make it easier for our customers to live healthier lifestyles.
