Wellspring Water is an ongoing project developed by Iona junior Kimberleigh Constanzo. The project collects empty cans and bottles and uses them towards building water wells in Africa. Not having access to freshwater causes many Africans to walk over 10 miles to get clean water or risk drinking unclean water that can lead to illness and disease. To date, Wellspring Water has collected over 65,000 bottles and cans, raising over $3000 to build clean water systems.
As part of Iona College's Make A Difference Week, the Volleyball team helped Kimberleigh collect four large bags of cans and bottles and bring them for redemption. They also participated in a presentation that helped educate the campus on this project and how to get involved. The team plans on continuing to assist Kimberleigh in her mission by placing collection bins in the locker rooms and redeeming them on a weekly basis.
