Water Needed ~~~

Water Drive
Over the past three years, homes in the Woodlands area of Connoquenessing Township, Butler County, Pennsylvania have experienced deteriorating water quality. Twelve families were receiving water deliveries from a natural gas operator until February of 2012 when their supply of fresh and safe drinking water was cut off.

Since then, a "Water Bank" was established at a local church to supply safe drinking water to the Woodlands residents. Volunteers from local communities, churches, and civic groups have been have been sharing the responsibilities of weekly water collections and distribution.

40 families who cannot drink the water in their homes, nor safely cook, bathe or wash clothes with it, now come to the Water Bank. About 500 gallons are needed each week to provide 20 gallons to the average family.  This still falls short of what the Red Cross considers the minimum required for an emergency -- 2 gallons per person per day.

As the number of affected families coming to the water bank continues to grow, the need for more water continues to grow. If you wish to help us meet this need, you can...
