Nestlé Waters Canada and almost 2,000 Community Residents Raise over $3,000 for Kids Ability and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Guelph!
September 20, 2017 – Puslinch, Ontario – This past weekend Nestlé Waters Canada opened its facilities to eat, play and socialize with its many neighbours and community partners. With all the donations tallied, including the Nestlé Waters Canada’s matching gift, we are proud to announce that our Biennial Open House raised a total donation of $3,456 for Kids Ability and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Guelph. These two community organizations are of special importance to our employees at our Nestlé Waters Canada head office and plant.
“It is great to see – for our 16th year – the community meet the Nestlé Waters Canada team, tour our facility and learn about our sustainable operations. The Aberfoyle Community Open House is a special opportunity to celebrate with our friends and neighbours the importance of healthy hydration and the positive role water plays in our lives,” said Debbie Moore, President of Nestlé Waters Canada. “Thanks to the hundreds of Wellington County families for making Saturday such a success. We look forward to having you back in 2019.”
Saturday’s festivities were one of many opportunities for the community to learn more about Nestlé Waters Canada’s operations – all while bringing their families for an afternoon of fun. Some kids had their face painted and caricatures drawn while others jumped around on the bouncy castle for hours. The Nestlé Pure Life Children’s Maze, Ray’s Reptile exhibit, the Project WET water festival and Friends of Mill Creek captured the imagination of many young attendees.
Adults lounged in the Jardin Extraordinaire by Perrier and sampled our newest flavours Perrier L’Orange and Perrier Green Apple. All enjoyed the BBQ followed by a selection of Nestlé Canada’s ice cream and frozen desserts. The safety and wellness of all attendees was possible with the support of the Puslinch Fire and Rescue Services and St. John’s Ambulance. Upon departure, each car received a white spruce tree to plant at home courtesy of the Green Legacy Programme.
Whether in Hope, British Columbia or Wellington County, Ontario, the 400-member Nestlé Waters Canada team looks forward to celebrations with its many neighbours and community partners in the spirit of continued partnership.
