Throughout the 2015 holiday season we encouraged our Garver employees and clients to contribute to Water4, with the promise that Garver would match their donation amount through GarverGives. Water4 trains people in impoverished communities to drill their own water wells and install their own hand pumps. We hoped to raise $5,000, which would provide the initial investment for equipping a trained team to start their own drilling business.
We’re proud to announce that because of the generous donations from our clients and employees, GarverGives recently presented a $14,000 check to Water4. That money will go directly to helping bring a sustainable solution for clean water to an Ethiopian community in need.
“Our intention with GarverGives is to enable vibrant science, engineering, and technology initiatives, and to improve local communities,” says Garver President and CEO Dan Williams. “The Water4 mission is something we support as a company, but it’s also something our individual employees and even our clients support, as is evidenced by the number of personal contributions GarverGives received specifically intended for Water4.”
