WaterBoss helps out in flood ravaged High River, Alberta

Thursday, July 4, 2013

WaterBoss contributes to the flood relief in Alberta by donating water filters to affected families.

When the people at WaterBoss’s Ohio factory got word of the flooding in Southern Alberta affecting countless families they felt compelled to help in any way and reacted fast. A little army of employees and management, including the president Robert Hague, rose early and pitched in to fill a semi-trailer bound for Calgary with nearly 3,000 water filters!

Four long days later the truck arrived in Calgary where Bollea Logistics unloaded it and re-loaded the filters on pallets for distribution. Three hours later the filters were delivered at the High River Red Cross relief center. Many local companies were delivering goods, such as rubber boots, shovels, cleaning supplies, etc. The Red Cross volunteers welcomed the donation and the WaterBoss filters were distributed to evacues returning home, as part of those essential supplies.

While it is still required to boil the water for safety, the WaterBoss water filtration pitchers and faucet-mount filters will provide clear and clean tasting water, offering a welcomed alternative to bottled water which can add up to be quite costly. We were told by Red Cross volunteers that after rubber boots, the filters were the most sought after items.

WaterBoss has been inspired by the strength of the community coming together, the deployment of Red Cross volunteers, and the resilience of the Alberta people. We were glad to have been able to contribute some relief to those in need. We encourage other to do the same.

Thanks again for all those who contributed to make this happen!
