For more than five years, Liquibox has provided bag-in-box bags to Aquene Springs—a North American supplier of source water. When the company approached Liquibox for help delivering emergency water to the Navajo Nation during the pandemic, Liquibox was ready to assist.
Through a newspaper article, Michael Hobson, owner of Aquene Springs, noticed the devastating effect of COVID-19 on many Navajo people. The lack of running water for many families living on reservations makes hand washing difficult, and water is often delivered by truck. Hobson decided to support relief efforts by donating emergency source water to at-risk populations. Hobson met with Jerry Linder, market segment director at Liquibox, who offered to have Liquibox partner in the effort by providing 5-gallon highly protective flexible bags with Liqui-Sure® dispensing taps.
Liquibox and Aquene Springs donated 5,000 bag-in-box packages.
