Arps Dairy to Donate 336 Gallons of Water for Hurricane Irma Relief


In the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Irma, many families have been left ravished and without basic necessities.  As those families begin to rebuild, and as additional volunteers pour in from across the country and around the world to provide much needed assistance, fresh drinking water will be in high demand.

In an effort to ‘do unto others’, Arps Dairy is donating 336 gallons of Arps Dairy Natural Spring Water.  With the help of the Defiance Area Chamber of Commerce, we are confident that this donation of much needed fresh water will reach those who need it most.  

“We are beyond honored to be able to supply those in need following such a horrific disaster with the basic necessities needed to begin their rebuilding their lives,” stated Adam Donaldson, Vice President of Sales and Service at Arps Dairy.  “Arps Dairy is a company founded on, and to this day ran on, a core set of principals that include supporting the community.  When a disaster hits that affects so many American lives – women and children, fathers, sisters, aunts, uncles, ect., our geographic definition of community grows to support those in need, wherever they are.”
