In what capacity are you involved with this organization?
“In 2015, I started the Wine to Water Charlotte Chapter which fundraises, volunteers, and raises awareness for the mission. We have raised over $30,000 for clean water. Additionally, I have represented Wine to Water at corporate events and have served internationally on four volunteer trips to help implement water projects.”
What is the grant for and how will it benefit the community?
Wine to Water is committed to supporting life and dignity for all through the power of clean water by serving the most remote, inaccessible communities and the most vulnerable populations around the world. The $25,000 grant from Invest in Others will be used to fund improved water access for the Navajo and Hopi people. Thousands of people are forced to drive long distances to fill up containers of water, which costs time and money. Through this program, Wine to Water will work with community leaders to identify priority water needs, design sustainable water systems in high-needs communities, and develop meaningful education programs which lead to sustainable water service in rural Navajo and Hopi Nations.
