Six Coca-Cola semi trucks packed with bottled water arrived in Waco, Texas on Thursday evening to help Texans affected by the winter storm.
“In the midst of this emergency, Coca-Cola was the good-hearted, compassionate neighbor we needed,” the city posted to social media. “Your generous gift will always be remembered by those residents in need.”
Thank you! Coca-Cola Bottling Company stepped up & donated 100 pallets of bottled water (six 18-wheelers full) shipped to Waco from out of town. Water is being distributed to residents in anticipation of having water cut off for major leak repairs. https://t.co/n9RDGd8qbq pic.twitter.com/e7byCf0HW3— City of Waco, Texas (@cityofwaco) February 19, 2021
The 100 pallets of water were unloaded by city staff, police officers, and firefighters and brought into the Waco convention center, where residents of neighborhoods cut off from water for water main repairs could pick it up as needed, reported MSN News.
Great job, everyone!
