Scotsman Ice Systems has announced plans to donate a percentage of each healthcare unit sold to the Global Water Challenge’s newly launched Women for Water campaign. The campaign is a global grassroots initiative that is dedicated to launching women-led water ventures, each of which is estimated to provide clean water for 1,000-2,500 people in its first year of operation.

“Water sanitation is a vital component in our business, so working with Women for Water was the right thing to do,” said Rich Gleitsmann, president of Scotsman Ice Systems. “Through our donations, Scotsman hopes to assist in solving the global water crisis and improve the health and lives of the world’s women and children.”

In information available at the company’s website (www.scotsman-ice.com), the company commented on its involvement in the healthcare sector. In part, the statement said, “Scotsman Ice Systems is committed to assisting healthcare facilities in providing the very best care for patients. That’s why nugget ice helps promote higher patient satisfaction surveys by offering soft, chewable ice that people love.”

Starting this month, Scotsman Ice Systems plans to submit donations to Women for Water twice per year.
