Boil Water Advisory in Texas
February 19, 21
Texas, we are with you.
As of Monday, February 22:
Approximately 8 million Texans remain under boil water advisory
325 million gallons of water have been lost due to leaks from cracked & burst pipes.
LifeStraw Donations are on their way
LifeStraw is donating 3 shipments of water filters which are arriving in Texas specifically targeting shelters and organizations that support people experiencing homelessness.
LifeStraw's Safe Water Fund:
We will also continue to donate product and if you would like to support efforts to send more LifeStraw products to Texas, we also have a non-profit safe water fund that will be directed towards Texas. Note: all donations to this fund cover the cost of sending additional LifeStraws and the company does not profit from these donations.
