Elete Donates Product to Tornado Victims

Published June 22, 2011

OGDEN, UT (BRAIN)—As the people of Joplin, Missouri, struggle to rebuild their lives and community following the devastating tornado in May, killing an estimated 139 individuals and resulting in millions of dollars of property damage, elete electrolytes has shipped a product donation of its elete Electrolyte Add-In through Nourish America, a non-profit organization that provides nourishing foods and supplements to people in need in America.

Nourish America has established a disaster relief site just outside of Joplin in Seneca, Missouri.

“We are pleased to have the chance to demonstrate our care and concern for the people of Missouri through Nourish America,” said Val John Anderson, executive vice-president and director of sales and marketing for elete. “Disaster clean up in the hardest hit areas will require hard work in hot, humid conditions, and we are pleased to keep these individuals hydrated and functioning in peak condition. Elete electrolytes are compact, ship well, and deliver rapid, noticeable results. We at elete Electrolytes thank Nourish America for organizing this relief effort and distributing necessary supplies to the community. We also thank UPS for their generosity in shipping this donation free of charge.”

“In our experience, during a natural disaster, there are specific products that bring immediate relief to both first responders as well as disaster victims, elete Electrolytes is one of them. Electrolytes are one of the top items on our wish list when we initiate a disaster relief effort so this donation is both valued and appreciated. Many thanks to everyone at elete for helping us at Nourish America support the health and well-being of the families and workers at Joplin, as they heal and rebuild,” said Michael Morton, executive director of Nourish America.
