Manufacturer/Supplier/Retailer category - May Supply Co., Harisonburg, VA
May Supply Company started a community outreach program called Water for Hope to help families of young children undergoing cancer treatment. Its first project was to install a whole-house filtration system so that a child could recuperate at home with his family. For a second family, Water for Hope coordinated a communitywide effort that included home renovations in addition to a complete water well and water treatment system. Children with compromised immune systems cannot go home with unsafe (or unknown) drinking water conditions, so these projects allowed these families to be together during crucial periods in their children's lives.
