Enderby taps into donation

Nestle Waters Canada has donated more than 2,000 cases of bottled water to Enderby

A major corporation is quenching the thirst of Enderby residents.

Nestle Waters Canada has donated more than 2,000 cases of bottled water to Enderby water customers to help during the community’s boil water advisory.

The water is staged in the Russell Avenue parking lot, across from the IGA, and is available to the public for pick-up. In order to ensure that there is enough to go around, the city is asking residents to please only take what they need (one to two cases depending on the number of people in the household).

Several of the Enderby Lions Club members will be volunteering their time to deliver cases of water to those who are unable to make it to the pickup location (elderly, those with mobility challenges, etc.). If someone needs to have a case of water delivered, contact J.P. at 250-308-9276 to arrange for delivery.

“On behalf of the City of Enderby, I would like to extend a big thank you to Nestle for making this generous donation to our community. This water is really going to help out our residents, who have been absolutely amazing throughout this entire process,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

“Also a big thank you to the Enderby Lions Club for stepping up to deliver cases of water to those in need, their generosity and community spirit is truly unparallelled.”
