RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – November 20, 2012 – Watermill Express, the nation’s largest drive-up pure drinking water and ice company, donated over 500 gallons of water to the H-E-B Feast of Sharing events held in November throughout Texas.

Watermill Express is a proud supporter of the Feast of Sharing program, which brings together hundreds of H-E-B partners and community members each year to serve a nutritious holiday meal to thousands of individuals in communities across Texas and Mexico.

“Once again, Watermill Express stepped up and helped make the H-E-B Feast of Sharing a huge success,” said Bailey Lowery, H-E-B Employee.  “The hard work of everyone at Watermill Express is greatly appreciated by everyone involved.”

It is estimated approximately 40,000 people filled community centers across Texas to enjoy the free meals.  At each event approximately 3,000 pounds of turkey and stuffing, 380 gallons of mashed potatoes, 95 gallons of gravy, 200 gallons of vegetable medley, 5,000 dinner rolls and 4,000 slices of pumpkin pie were served.

“As many families continue to struggle in the current economy, the greater a necessity our events become,” said Lowery.  “We strive to create an event where families feel welcome and can enjoy a sense of belonging while eating a nutritious meal; thanks to Watermill Express and all of our sponsors we are successful in doing so.”

Thus far, Watermill Express has participated in Feast of Sharing events in Harlingen, Laredo, Brownsville and McAllen, Texas.
