Texas A&M students team up with actor Jason Momoa to deliver water to College Station Fire Department
“We’re really here to kind of bring awareness as well as provide that relief to our first responders.”
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - Students in the Texas A&M College of Geosciences and the Texas A&M chapter of Wine To Water donated three pallets of canned water to the College Station Fire Department. The water was originally sent to the university by Mananalu Water, a sustainability-focused can water company owned by actor Jason Momoa.
The students say this was their way to help with the water crisis that has impacted millions in Texas. This year, students have delivered water filters and canned water to residents in need in Bryan, College Station, Waco, Corpus Christi, Rockport, Port Arthur, Livingston, Baytown, Elkhart, and Longview.
“We’re really here to kind of bring awareness as well as provide that relief to our first responders just to make sure they’re taken care of because they do take care of us as well,” said Bree Gonzalez, a Texas A&M student.
Assistant fire chief Chris Kelly accepted the donation on behalf of the department. He says the department appreciates the support from the students and water company.
“This is a very warm gesture and we appreciate them thinking about the health and well-being of the firefighters and making sure that we have adequate supplies for extra hydration and water,” said Kelly.
