Texas summers are hot! Unfortunately not everyone is fortunate enough to have the basic necessity to survive the heat: water. Elena Davis, President and Founder of I Am Waters, saw a need of clean water for those that are experiencing homelessness and decided to do something about it. In 2009, Elena Davis started the I Am Waters Foundation.
“The I Am Waters Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Houston, Texas dedicated to providing fresh, clean water to the homeless.”
Last week, The Salvation Army was blessed with a large donation of bottled water from the I Am Waters Foundation for those in our emergency shelters this summer. I Am Waters donated 22 pallets (38,016) bottles of water. They will donate water again to The Salvation Army Emergency Shelters in August.
These water bottles will help keep the children in our shelters hydrated while at summer camp and while playing at our shelters, and will also keep the women in our shelters hydrated on their way back and forth from school or work.
I Am Waters carry inspirational messages on each of their bottles knowing that the person drinking from the bottle may need a little inspiration.
“I am so impressed and inspired by the many great organizations that help the homeless with housing, job skills and food. I Am Waters compliments these groups with our straight-forward mission to provide clean water to the homeless on the streets… I Am Waters provides our inspirational water bottles to homeless organizations for free to distribute to their clients in ways they deem best.”
We are thankful to I Am Waters for providing not only hydration to those living in our emergency shelters, but also love, compassion and hope as well.
Purchasing a bottle of water from I Am Waters at your local Whole Foods, supports the I Am Waters Foundation.
