Local meteorologist helped raise funds for clean water
PG&E’s John Lindsey joined forces with Cannon Corp. for annual fundraiser
Taking a break from his winter forecasts, Central Coast meteorologist and weather columnist John Lindsey traded in his radar for a spatula on Valentine’s Day to help raise funds for water wells in developing nations.
While Lindsey has written much about our recurring drought conditions, access to clean water remains an issue in many parts of the world. The Well Worth It campaign has raised enough money to fund the construction of more than 20 wells worldwide. Those wells help eliminate water-related illnesses, which are a serious health issue in underdeveloped countries like Ethiopia.
The morning’s efforts resulted in over $1,700 in funds raised. This equates to 85 people now having access to water in their local village.
