WASHINGTON, DC -- March 1, 2019 -- The Water Well Trust, the only national nonprofit helping low income Americans get access to a clean, safe water supply, has completed its second water well project funded by a Culligan Cares donation.
The latest Culligan Cares project was completed for a single Mother in Georgia with 4 dependent children ages 17 to 8. The family had been living without access to water for over a year.
Work on the new well was completed on February 5. The excited new well owner, who is calling this a miracle, wrote:
First I want to say THANKS to the Water Well Trust and Culligan Cares for the amazing blessing. January 2018 my well went dry. I tried to do everything to fix it. I even asked family members to help me out with water until I was able to purchase a well. That was not a success, so that's when I contacted Sandersville Well and spoke with Sarah Sanders. I explained my situation to her. From that moment on she was a GREAT HELP. She advised me how to apply for assistance from the Water Well Trust. I followed all procedures.
A couple months Margaret Martens from Water Well Trust called me and asked if I was still interested in a well. I immediately replied YES because I had lost all hope. She told me I was selected for a grant to cover the cost of the well from Culligan Cares and that she would contact me in a few months. Ms. Margaret called me December 2018 and gave me the best news I had heard all year. She told me that Water Well Trust had the money from Culligan Cares for me and my children to get a well and for me to contact the well company. I immediately called Sandersville Well and Mrs. Sarah, she told me to get a well permit and I did just that. When I received the well permit I took it to her and as I was signing the contract I couldn't stop the tears 😭😭..... I had never received a Great Financial Blessing such as this. February 5,2019 is the day I watched the company dig me and my kids a BRAND NEW WELL..... I WAS SOOOO EXCITED... Sarah Sanders, Robin Spaniel from the Water Well Trust and myself watched them dig the well until water came ... ME AND MY CHILDREN want to THANK YOU ALL SOOOOOOO SO MUCH FOR YOU'R AMAZING GIFT. If I can do anything to help you all help someone else please let me know.... Thanks again 🙏🙏🙏:-)
This is the third water well project funded by Culligan Cares donations. In 2017, the Water Well Trust received monies for the first Culligan Cares project to fund a well for a family with five children in Stephentown, NY and in 2018 Culligan Cares drilled a well for a disabled police officer, his wife, and his blind Mother-in law in Louisiana.
As the leading quality water expert, Culligan is committed to helping individuals, families and communities in need of clean, safe drinking water. Culligan dealers across North America have been working through their local churches, businesses and other nonprofits for decades to provide help and support to both water and non-water charitable efforts in their communities.
The Water Well Trust is a 501(c)3 organization created by the Water Systems Council and serves Americans living primarily in rural, unincorporated areas or minority communities that may be isolated and difficult to reach, assisting low income families that cannot afford to pay for public water supplies and those who live in areas where the extension of public water supplies to serve them doesn't make economic sense.
