Franklin and DSI Support Global Water Cause

08/31/2016

Around the world, 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water, while 2.6 billion are without adequate IMG_1957sanitation facilities. Every day, nearly 6,000 people who share our planet die from water-related illnesses, and the vast majority are children. Recently, Franklin partnered with local Indianapolis distributor Drillers Service Inc. (DSI) to
sponsor and participate in the 10th annual Run for World Water 5K in Indianapolis, Indiana. Together, more than 25 Franklin and DSI employees and family members ran for the cause. Proceeds of the event go to Water For People, a nonprofit organization that helps people in developing countries improve quality of life through the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs.
