In 2020, Niagara Bottling donated 90 semi-truck loads of its bottled water to Feed the Children, a leading nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to aid in the charity’s disaster relief efforts by helping those children and families devastated by the recent hurricanes and wildfires that have swept across the nation. In continuing their efforts of support, Niagara has also donated over $100,000 worth of life sustaining essentials to address the unprecedented need of those vulnerable families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “Niagara Bottling is proud to work alongside Feed the Children to ensure that families and children who are struggling have the resources they need right now,” said Andy Peykoff II, President & CEO of Niagara Bottling. “Our work together is important to the families they serve. In times of disaster, we want to support our neighbors with essential hydration as they work through a long recovery process.”

This year has brought many extraordinary challenges to Americans as families are still reeling from the effects of Hurricanes Laura, Sally, and Delta, as well as the ongoing West Coast wildfires and COVID-19 pandemic. These historic events have left those in their path without the clean, safe water needed for daily life. In order to provide relief to struggling families, Niagara Bottling and Feed the Children have continued their decade-long partnership, reaching hundreds of thousands of people across the nation.

Since the beginning of their partnership in 2009, Niagara has donated more than 130 million pounds of water to support Feed the Children’s disaster relief efforts, totaling more than $30 million in estimated product value. Throughout the years, the nonprofit has been dedicated to making sure Niagara Bottling’s generous donations were placed in the hands of American’s when they needed it most.

 

“It is only through partnership that we can reach at-risk families and respond to critical emergencies,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO of Feed the Children. “Access to clean, safe water is a basic human right, especially during a crisis such as a natural disaster. Through our partnership with Niagara Bottling, we can support America’s most vulnerable during these difficult times, providing much-needed resources for the future.”
