Shreveport, La. – Shreveport-based Music Mountain Water is donating more than 10,000 bottles of water to help with Hurricane Michael relief efforts in Florida.  A truck will pick up the palates of water on Saturday, October 13th at 9am at Music Mountain Water’s store at 305 Stoner Avenue in Shreveport.  That’s at the corner of Stoner and Gilbert.

A moving truck from Coral Springs Moving and Storage will pick up the water before heading to Florida.  Moving company owner Kenny Kling and Dan Margolis had finished moving some goods to Oklahoma and decided to put their empty truck to good use and pick up relief donations as they head back to Florida.

The two contacted the American Red Cross, which called the Salvation Army which eventually led to Music Mountain Water General Manager David Laun. Music Mountain Water will load the truck with 5 palates of water.

Resident who would like to donate relief supplies should bring them to Music Mountain Water’s store before 9am tomorrow morning.

For more information, contact Ed Walsh with Romph-Pou Agency at (318) 465-0138.

Music Mountain Water has been owned by the Wren family since 1980.  The company is located in Shreveport and services homes and businesses in Monroe, Alexandria and Lafayette, as well as East Texas and South Arkansas.

 A Shreveport native has teamed up with a local water company to help flood victims in southeast Texas.Hurricane Harvey dumped 19-trillion gallons of water just in East Texas, some storm victims actually need water – bottled water.

Shreveport native Brandon Sweeney now lives in College Station, Texas. He discovered just how serious the problem is while delivering emergency supplies with fellow church members in the Beaumont area.”Yesterday we were met by people in just desperate need of drinking water and clean water,” Sweeney said.Sweeney said he and fellow church members had already taken several trips to areas hardest hit by flooding in southeast Texas when they heard of this water shortage. He, along with others, took action.

“We took a truck and a trailer load of water and that has been used up very quickly.”

When flooding in Beaumont shorted-out the main water-pumping station and then the backup as well, that city’s 100,000 residents were left without drinking water.

That’s led to long lines for that bottled water and only worsened the water shortage.

“We were having trouble finding resources to get more water,” Sweeney said. “So we reached out to the guys at Music Mountain.”

The response from General Manager Dave Laun at Music Mountain Water Company in Shreveport was the best news Sweeney heard in a while.

“Absolutely. We’ll help those in need for sure,” Laun said. “That’s what we do. So, we want to help. We’re a small family-owned business and we want to help others.”

Sweeney arrived early Saturday morning to pick up those 20-pallets of free water at Music Mountain headquarters on Stoner Avenue in Shreveport. Then Sweeney quickly delivered that water down south.

It turns out, this is not the first donation made by Music Mountain.

“We’ve probably sent out close to 20 to 30 pallets already, just out of our water store here,” Laun said.

Laun added that they’ve also recently sent another 4 trailer loads of bottled water from their production plant across the street in Shreveport.

He concluded that they expect to send even more water down south before it’s all over.

Music Mountain Water will also begin accepting donations at their water store, at the corner of Gilbert Drive and Stoner Avenue in Shreveport from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.

Donations can include everything from lumber to tools and clothing to food, not to mention cleaning supplies.

Music Mountain Water also donated water for the nearly 200 volunteers for this year’s Red River Balloon Rally.  The company also donated water for high school students taking part in the Cadet Leadership Academy at the University of Louisiana Monroe.  And talk about the dog days of summer, the Music Mountain Water Wagon was there for the opening of Shreveport’s new dog park.

“We believe in giving back to the communities who have supported us through the years,” said Marcus Wren, Owner and President of Music Mountain Water.  “So when University Health Shreveport asked if we could supply water for the volunteers at its back to school fair, we said yes!”

“Music Mountain Water is also proud to be the official bottled water sponsor at Splash Kingdom,” said Dave Laun, Music Mountain Water General Manager.  “We want people to remember while they’re having fun in the water, they still need to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration in this heat.”
