Vernon Hills, Ill.— October 3, 2012—Scotsman Ice Systems today announced plans to donate a percentage of each healthcare unit sold to the Global Water Challenge’s newly launched Women for Water campaign. The campaign is a global grassroots initiative that is dedicated to launching women-led water ventures, each of which is estimated to provide clean water for 1,000-2,500 people in its first year of operation.
“Water sanitation is a vital component in our business so working with Women for Water was the right thing to do,” said Rich Gleitsmann, president of Scotsman Ice Systems. “Through our donations, Scotsman hopes to assist in solving of the global water crisis and improve the health and lives of the world’s women and children.”
Starting January 2013, Scotsman Ice Systems plans to submit donations to Women for Water twice per year.
