Water – it’s a basic necessity for all living creatures, yet a staggering 780 million people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water.
For Dunmore native Chad Corbett, that number was unacceptable.
Back in 2011, fed up with the traditions of a commercial Christmas, Corbett, now of Roanoke, Virginia, chose, instead, to contribute money to non-profit organizations.
“I’ve contributed quite a bit of money both personally and through my company [All The Leads] over the last seven or eight years,” Corbett said.
Through his donations, Corbett has worked with several non-profits and was contacted by Mountain Safety Research, of Seattle, Washington, and was invited to be part of a group of volunteers who take MSR water filters to villages in Nepal.
