Nestlé Waters North America has announced that it donated more than 1.3 million bottles of water to communities in Texas and Louisiana that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

The Stamford-based company said that 37 truckloads of its bottled water are being distributed in the storm-ravaged areas by relief groups including Americares, the American Red Cross, Gleaning for The World, Convoy of Hope and Feeding America. Nestlé Waters’ Ozarka brand of spring water is sourced from three Texas springs, but those are based outside of the areas that sustained damage from the hurricane.

“We are committed to delivering critical supplies of clean water to impacted individuals, families and communities in the wake of this disaster,” said Fernando Mercé, president and CEO of Nestlé Waters North America.
