October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and everyone is thinking pink. That includes Culligan Water Conditioning.

Culligan 5-gallon water bottles have pink caps this month.

“We started this last year,” said Skip Wallace, owner of Emmetsburg Culligan. “Our bottling dealer and our shop will be donating toward the cancer awareness.”

In fact, the bottling dealer will donate 10-cents for every pink-capped bottle sold and Wallace’s Water Conditioning will be donating another 10-cents for every pink-capped bottle sold.

Wallace said he receives approximately two semi loads of 5-gallon water bottles every two weeks. There are 880 bottles per load, so that amounts to over 1,700 pink-capped bottles that will be sold in Palo Alto, Kossuth and Emmet Counties in the next month.

All of the funds raised will be donated to Relay for Life in Palo Alto, Kossuth and Emmet Counties.

Skip Wallace (pictured on front) loaded the first pink-capped bottle into Jane Soenen’s vehicle. He is ready to take the blue-capped bottles back in return.
