"Deer Park strives to be there in times of emergency," said Alex McIntosh, Director of Corporate Citizenship.

"We are thankful for the support of Nestle Waters North America," said Lauri Rhinehart, Vice President of Development Operations for the American Red Cross. "Through their donation of water, the American Red Cross will be able to meet the needs of the community."
