Field Note #189: Building Filters with Grand Circle Foundation
Back in early June, Grand Circle Foundation celebrated its 60th anniversary at its annual gathering, held at their Pinnacle Leadership Center in Kensington, NH. In order to show their dedication to providing clean water and to celebrate their big anniversary in a meaningful way, Grand Circle Foundation partnered with Wine To Water in a filter build to construct 1,000 filters that are currently being distributed to communities around the globe.
Wine to Water's filter builds provide a fun and interesting atmosphere for organizations, corporations, and groups to learn more about the Global Water Crisis while building filters that will be given to people who need them the most. These filters are easy to build in just ten steps and filter out 99% of bacteria and other impurities found in local water sources. Each build provides a unique team-building experience while also allowing people to play a direct role in providing water to communities worldwide.
Grand Circle Foundation's filter build helped to provide clean water to thousands of families and individuals in places such as the Amazon, Honduras, East Africa, and Colombia.
Wine to Water is proud to partner with organizations like Grand Circle Foundation, who are committed to improving the lives of individuals around the globe.
