Charities We’ve Supported – Thanks to You!


Race for the Cure Twin CitiesSusan G. Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer. The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raise significant funds for the breast cancer movement, supports those living with metastatic breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. In recent years, nearly 30,000 participants have attended the Twin Cities race every Mother’s Day.

Premium Waters has supported this event for years. For the 2019 race, our brands Chippewa® Springs and Water Joe™ were gold sponsors, and our employees and their families volunteered to distribute bottles of water to attendees.

Ruby’s Pantry

Founded in 2003, Ruby’s Pantry serves over 450k people each year and distributes over 16 million pounds of food. Pop-Up Pantry’s are held on various days throughout the week, including Saturdays in over 75 communities across Minnesota and Wisconsin. Each guest who goes to a Pop-Up Pantry donates $20 per food share and receives an abundance of grocery items. Ruby’s Pantry is a 501 C3 non-profit and has a rich heritage as a community outreach program.

Ruby’s Pantry is our surplus donation partner. We donate most of our extra inventory to help hydrate local communities.

Pierce 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

Pierce Memorial Stair Climb

Pierce Manufacturing hosts their 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb annually at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. All proceeds go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives and to work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths. At the 2018 event, more than 2,700 participants promised to “never forget” the 343 New York firefighters who lost their lives on that tragic day.

Our brand Nicolet™ Natural, the official bottled water of the Green Bay Packers, was proud to be the sponsor of all water for last year’s event.

Hydrate the Homeless MN

Festival Foods Turkey Trot

The Festival Foods Turkey Trot allows participants to partake in either a timed five-mile run or an untimed two-mile fun run/walk every Thanksgiving morning. This event benefits the Boys & Girls Club and YMCA in communities that Festival Foods serves. In the past 11 years, the Festival Foods Turkey Trot has donated more than 2.5 million dollars! Every fall, Premium Waters donates all the gallons of water for this event throughout Wisconsin.

Hydrate the Homeless

Water is the essence of life. Hydrate the Homeless is a non-profit organization that travels to unprotected homeless shelters in the Milwaukee, WI area during the hottest month of the summer to distribute cases of clean water to those in need.

Last summer, Premium Waters provided Hydrate the Homeless over 34,000 bottles of water we produced at a bulk discounted rate for the second year to support this non-profit. From July 9–31, 2018, cases of water were delivered to the following homeless shelters: Just One More Ministries, Street Angels, Pathfinders, Guest House, Rescue Mission, Street Life, Walkers Point Youth Shelter, and MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary.
