We take water for granted, don’t we? Most of us wake up each day, turn on the tap, and don’t really think much about where the water comes from, how it gets to us, by what process it’s made safe for us to drink.
It’s just there. Flowing, as far as we know, infinitely.
But around the world, and right here in Waterloo Region, not everyone has that same security in access to safe, clean water.
“With the temporary closure of free public water stations – due to COVID-19, coupled with the extreme heat, many people in our region are struggling to access a basic necessity – water,” said Wendi Campbell, CEO, The Food Bank. “This initiative will help ensure the most vulnerable in our community are able to access fresh, safe drinking water. Thank you to the team at David Johnston Research + Technology Park for your support.”
This is why R+T Park is partnering with The Food Bank to raise funds for up to 4,000 reusable water bottles to be distributed to vulnerable members of the community through the Food Bank and their partners.
If each member of the R+T Park community donated $1 today, we would meet our goal.
“Access to clean water is a basic human right, but it’s one that is isn’t realized by many around the world, here in Canada, and right here in Waterloo,” said Mike Pereira, Manager, R+T Park. “I’m proud that R+T Park and our tenants can support The Food Bank of Waterloo Region in making a difference in out community.”
