Young Conaway to Build Water Filters to Support Wine To Water
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Wilmington, DE – November 13, 2017) - Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP is pleased to announce that on November 14th over 100 firm attorneys and staff will join together at the firm’s Wilmington office to build water filters that will bring clean water to communities both in the United States and abroad.
“Our goal in organizing this event is to capture the entire firm’s collaborative and caring spirit to bring clean water, our most basic need, to others around the globe,” said Michael R. Nestor, a partner in the firm’s Bankruptcy Section, and a member of the firm’s management committee. “We are so inspired by the work that Wine To Water does and the numerous communities it helps. Unfortunately, the recent hurricanes have depleted their supply of water filters, so the filters we build will fill an immediate need.”
Wine To Water is an international nonprofit organization committed to providing clean water to those in need. Young Conaway plans to build 300 filters at its event.
“I am really looking forward to working with members of Young Conaway, and applaud the firm for rolling up its sleeves to actually do something that will have a significant impact on communities around the world,” said David Cuthbert, CEO of Wine To Water. “Today, nearly 700 million people in the world lack access to adequate water and 2.4 billion people lack access to improved sanitation. Young Conaway is truly making a difference.”
Wine To Water uses local people to develop leaders in the country they are serving, and educate them on proper water and sanitation methods to promote sustainability. Their work empowers the local community to help them meet their ongoing needs. To learn more about Wine To Water, visit www.winetowater.org.
