Antunes, a water treatment and commercial kitchen appliance manufacturer in Carol Stream, IL, partners with the non-profit organization Splash to bring clean water to children around the world through Splash’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) program.
Antunes’ ultra-filtration technology, designed for the challenges of the food service industry, treats water in public schools, hospitals and other institutions to meet WHO guidelines for drinking water quality. As of 2021, Splash and Antunes have partnered to provide clean water technology to nearly 900,00 children at more than 2,300 schools, hospital, shelters and orphanages. Splash has set a bold goal of reaching children at every orphanage in China, every public school in Kathmandu, Nepal, and every child-serving institution in Kolkata, India.
In addition, Antunes employees raise money to support Splash’s efforts with various companywide events, including the annual golf outing, which in 2021 raised a record $115,000 for Splash. “The golf outing is an annual highlight for our team members and partners, providing the opportunity to connect outside the office while raising money for an important cause,” said Jane Antunes Bullock, Chief Purpose Officer. “Our partnership with Splash continues to be a source of pride for Antunes.”
