Elk Grove Village, IL – November 7, 2012 – Recognizing the call for help with supplies to help residents in New Jersey impacted by Hurricane Sandy last week, RainSoft has delivered a semi-truck load of bottled water to residents of Atlantic City.

A total of 20,700 bottles arrived at Sandcastle Stadium, where local RainSoft dealer Curt Wunder led efforts and distributed the water to several relief centers.  Wunder owns Atlantic Water Products, which has an office in Mays Landing and services customers in southern New Jersey.  Assisting Wunder and his team was RainSoft regional director Dan Pfister and Charles Haney, a former RainSoft dealer and owner of the Melting Pot Restaurant in Atlantic City, which was destroyed by the storm.

“We saw the devastation from the television reports and heard from Curt how bad it was in getting basic needs to the thousands of people who were impacted by this incredible storm,” said Andrew Palframan, RainSoft Senior Vice President and General Manager.  “Our team in Elk Grove Village found every bottle of water available and put it on the truck.  Curt and his employees did a great job of coordinating with local officials to help with the relief efforts.”
