CannedWater4Kids, Ball Corporation, Alcoa, Fleetmaster Express, and Cargo Solution Express Trucking Company joined forces to send the rush delivery. The recent hurricane and Nor’easter was devastating to millions of people on the east coast. Entire communities were washed away.

“We received a call from the Red Cross asking for help," said CannedWater4Kids CEO, Greg Stromberg. "Without hesitation, we did what any good human being would do. We helped. Coordinating and financing the water delivery was a team effort. We couldn’t have done it without the help of Ball Corporation, Alcoa, Fleetmaster, and Cargo Solution Express. Their help and support was incredible.”
