Culligan contributes to relief efforts in Haiti

Published 9:30 am Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Several weeks have passed since the devastating earthquake shook Haiti.

The outpouring of support has been amazing, and it has come from all sectors. Culligan and its dealers have been actively contributing to the relief efforts in Haiti.

 So far, Culligan has sent over 250,000 bottles of drinking water. The first shipments were air lifted to Haiti and were on the ground within days of the earthquake. Culligan officials were pleased to see our water being handed out at relief stations during ABC News’ coverage on the scene. Since then, Culligan has been providing a steady supply of bottled water to local citizens and relief workers.

 Last week, Culligan sent three new high-tech, self-contained water purification systems. Each system produces 10 gallons of clean water per minute, meaning that they can provide over 14,000 gallons of clean water every day. The systems use ultra filtration and can be operated using a local power supply or a gasoline-powered generator. The best part is that the systems can filter water from any local fresh water supply — a lake, stream, river or well.

Many dealers have been supporting local initiatives, and Culligan’s corporate office has been supporting them in their efforts.
