SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- AquaTru is proud to collaborate with Pastor Derrick Aldridge of Second Chance Church to distribute free AquaTru water purifiers and over 2,000 high-quality KN95 masks to those most at risk in the Flint, Michigan, community, including local nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Six years after the start of the lead crisis, the community of Flint is still struggling to access clean water. Even though the city has replaced about 85 percent of the lead pipes serving its water system, the lead pipe replacement program has been temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, still leaving some residents without safe water in their homes.
AquaTru is an advanced countertop water purifier, certified to NSF standards to remove 83 contaminants, including over 99% of lead. Its patented, four-stage Ultra Reverse Osmosis® technology works without installation or plumbing - just plug in and purify. Its filters are also long-lasting and easy to change.
Peter Spiegel, founder, inventor and CEO of AquaTru, says, "As communities and governments work to resolve these crises, the private sector must do its part to provide innovative solutions. AquaTru is committed to raising awareness about tap water contamination and giving back to the most vulnerable communities."
AquaTru's donation to the Flint community is part of its mission to give back to communities most in need of access to clean, safe drinking water across America. As part of its Giving Program, AquaTru is donating 1% of all water purifiers sold to communities in need of clean, safe drinking water.
Second Chance Church has a dedicated history of providing services to its community and has partnered with various organizations over the years to provide support to those underserved in Flint. Pastor Derrick Aldridge said, "I am truly honored to work with AquaTru. The company has shown compassion for the residents of Flint, from the children to the seniors, by providing water filtration systems and now masks. I would personally like to thank the entire AquaTru team and the owners, Peter Spiegel and Katie Williams, for all they have done to keep us with hope and to help save lives."
AquaTru's mission is to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to clean, safe drinking water. AquaTru is one of the leading brands of Ideal Living -- a Los Angeles-based company that invents, markets and distributes innovative health, wellness and home environment products to significantly improve the quality of life of individuals and communities.
