APEC Water Systems Extends Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Donation Program for 2011 to Benefit Charity
California website FreeDrinkingWater.com extends popular program that provides FREE drinking water systems to the sick and needy.
Hacienda Heights, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2011
APEC Water Systems is excited to announce that they will continue providing FREE water filtration systems to people who are in need of pure drinking water for the first half of 2011. From now until the end of June, disadvantaged individuals and families who are experiencing both financial and medical hardships can apply at the website Freedrinkingwater.com for a chance to receive a free reverse osmosis water purification system.
According to recent news reports, tap water from 31 of 35 U.S. cities have tested positive for hexavalent chromium, or chromium-6, based on laboratory tests. Hexavalent chromium is a carcinogen and unfortunately, it is just one of the many contaminants that are found in drinking water which can cause cancer and damage people’s health. For individuals who are already sick and undergoing medical treatment, even low levels of toxins in their water can have a negative effect on their recovery. Unfortunately, many people do not have the financial means to purchase a quality reverse osmosis system to filter out contaminants like chromium, arsenic and fluoride which are not removed by basic faucet water filters.
APEC’s FreeDrinkingWater program will donate several new water filtration systems every month to qualified applicants for the first half of 2011. Besides reverse osmosis, other systems that are available include whole house carbon filters, countertop filters, iron removal systems, and UV water purifiers. “We are excited to continue to offer this program and would like to thank the past applicants who have made it truly meaningful and worthwhile.” said Ed Shih, marketing manager at APEC. “We believe that purified drinking water is fundamental to peoples’ health, and would like to sincerely and humbly welcome all applicants who are interested to apply today.”
The FreeDrinkingWater program is open to all residences within the 48 contiguous states. Full details, eligibility requirements and application forms are available to the public through the website at http://www.freedrinkingwater.com/charity.
