Ritter's Kyle Keith and Darrious Duffin will drive a truck to East Texas Saturday to deliver bottled water to help those impacted by the floods.
Ritter Communications is collecting bottled water at its Jonesboro office (2400 Ritter Drive) today which the company will deliver to Beaumont, Texas this weekend. Individuals who are interested in contributing may drop off cases of water at Ritter’s loading dock (located on the south side of the building) by 5 p.m. Friday.
Beaumont, a city of 100,000 people located 80 miles west of Houston, is in desperate need for clean water after the city’s municipal water pumps failed earlier this week due to flooding in the area.
“One of our employees spoke with the local sheriff, and he communicated a dire need for clean water,” said Ritter Communications President Alan Morse. “As a company, we feel compelled to help our neighbors, and we invite the Jonesboro community to join the effort.”
Ritter rented a box truck that will leave Jonesboro Saturday morning to deliver the water to East Texas. Individually-bottled 24-packs water are ideal for donation.
