Almost 500 families will be without municipal water for several weeks
TOWNSHIP of PUSLINCH, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s market share-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced that it has donated 18,360 bottles of water to the City of Cambridge and the Township of Guelph-Eramosa to help aid almost 500 families who will be without municipal water for several weeks because their pipes are frozen due to a particularly harsh winter in Southern Ontario.
About 16,320 bottles were donated to the City of Cambridge and another 2,040 bottles were given to the Township of Guelph-Eramosa. The bottles have a suggested retail value of approximately $3,500.
The Company has pledged to provide addition bottled water, as required, given the pipes may not thaw out until the beginning of April.
