Sussex, WI – September 20, 2017

CannedWater4Kids (CW4K), Sunburst Chemicals and Metro Companies have joined forces to send clean, safe, drinking water to aid in the Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts. A truckload of 52,800, 12-ounce cans of fresh, purified water was sent to the Montgomery County Food Bank in Conroe, Texas.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall for the first time on August 25 and landed a devastating blow to the Gulf Coast of Texas. A multiple-day event, the Category 4 storm with 130 mph winds was the most powerful hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade. Damage caused by the high winds, torrential rains and record flooding displaced more than 30,000 people and prompted over 17,000 rescues.

The impact of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in southeast Texas for a long time. Fortunately, companies like CW4K, Sunburst Chemicals and Metro Companies are providing humanitarian efforts that are helping to ease the pain.

"The people of Texas needed our help," said Greg Stromberg, CannedWater4Kids water charity CEO. "So, without hesitation, we helped. It was the right thing to."

"It is hard to imagine being without clean, safe drinking water," remarked Jodi Paul, Supply Chain Manager for Sunburst Chemicals. "We knew we had to help."

Nikolaus Hovde, Sales Manager at Metro Companies added, "It’s a good feeling knowing that we were able to make a difference at a time of need."

We know Texas will need additional drinking water as time goes on. Our hope is to be able to send additional truckloads,” added Stromberg.

CW4K is no stranger to disaster relief. Whether it was the earthquakes in Japan and Haiti, Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey in 2012, or help for the lead-contaminated municipal water supply in Flint, MI, the 501c3 charity was there with clean, safe drinking water packaged in 12-ounce aluminum beverage cans. Now the support continues. Learn more about CW4K by visiting http://www.cannedwater4kids.org.
