Park Place Infiniti launches water drive for Shade Tree

Park Place Infiniti is launching a monthlong bottled water drive for The Shade Tree.

During July, the dealership will be a public donation site for collecting bottled water.

The dealership aims to collect as many cases as possible to serve an increasing need. Shade Tree Executive Director Marlene Richter said the shelter is using at least 100 cases of bottled water per week for residents of the shelter for women and children affected by domestic violence. The Shade Tree is also serving as a cooling station for homeless women and children and is providing water for those who stop in.

The drive is a project of the dealership’s Circle of Excellence, an employee-led program dedicated to helping worthwhile local causes.
