A.J. Antunes & Co., a family owned and operated company specializing in the manufacturing of foodservice equipment, will be participating in The Splash Effect of World Water Day 2016. This month-long fundraising campaign benefits A.J. Antunes & Co.’s corporate charity partner, Splash, a nonprofit organization that brings clean water to children throughout the world. The campaign will run between World Water Day, March 22, and Earth Day, April 22, and A.J. Antunes’ goal is to raise $5,000.
“When we learned about The Splash Effect of World Water Day, we were inspired by the importance of the campaign and as partners of the organization, we wanted to help,” said Jane Antunes Bullock, vice president of administration with A.J. Antunes & Co. “If we are able to meet our $5,000 target, that donation will go toward improving the sanitation conditions at up to 10 schools — a mission that resonates with our entire team and will drive our fundraising efforts.”
To encourage employee participation, A.J. Antunes & Co. will be holding a number of internal fundraisers, including a luncheon, a used equipment auction and a raffle for a day of paid vacation. Additionally, the company has instated a match for employees’ personal donations up to $100.
In addition to participating in this recent challenge, A.J. Antunes & Co. supports Splash on an ongoing basis through financial donations from other corporate initiatives and events, such as the company’s annual golf outing, which has collectively raised more than $100,000 to assist Splash in its efforts to bring clean water to children around the world.
A.J. Antunes & Co. also serves as a valued product supplier for Splash. The organization has purchased and installed more than 1,140 of the company’s water filtration systems that provide clean water to more than 350,000 people each day. The reliable water filtration systems from A.J. Antunes & Co. provide the necessary means to generate clean water, utilizing Splash’s established networks to complete the installation projects in a timely manner and manage the projects on an ongoing basis.
