At Energy Recovery, we are committed to looking after the well-being of our communities, both locally and globally. This is now more important than ever, as millions of people around the world are deeply impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
Recognizing that we are in the fortunate position to be able to give back, Energy Recovery has launched several initiatives to support organizations providing immediate COVID-19 relief. In addition to providing personal protective equipment (PPE) and financial donations, we introduced an employee donation match program to support the critical work these organizations are doing.
Energy Recovery donated urgently needed face masks from our manufacturing facilities to hospitals on the front line of the fight against COVID-19 within our communities in California and Texas.
Meals on Wheels
We are supporting Meals on Wheels programs serving our local communities in California and Texas. This essential meal delivery service helps keep vulnerable seniors safe and nourished amid the global health crisis.
We have partnered with GlobalGiving to support COVID-19 relief efforts around the world. Funds will help send doctors, nurses and other frontline responders to communities in need, provide masks, ventilators and other life-saving supplies to hospitals and clinics, and deliver essential items to under-served families and seniors in quarantined cities and refugee camps.
Clean water is crucial for frequent hand washing and sanitary practices needed to stop the spread of COVID-19. Energy Recovery is supporting Water.org efforts to make water and sanitation safe, accessible, and cost-effective for communities worldwide.
