Uponor Donates $30K to Texas Relief Efforts
APPLE VALLEY, Minn. — With a purpose of rethinking water for future generations, Uponor North America is donating $30,000 to Texas relief efforts.
The American Red Cross Central and South Texas Region along with Water Mission are each receiving $15,000 from Uponor to help support their efforts in providing resources, supplies and plumbing repairs for the millions of Texans impacted by the deep freeze in mid-February.
To date, the American Red Cross has deployed more than 280 volunteers and has supplied more than 81,000 meals, 16,400 cleaning and comfort kits, 7,700 overnight stays, and 1,300 contacts for those with physical, mental, and spiritual health needs.
In addition to food and shelter services, one of the greatest needs is plumbing repairs in homes and businesses. According to Water Mission Strategic Partnership Director Rogers Hook, P.E., the need for plumbing repairs is dire and the resources are limited.
