RIDGID Donates Vacuum Cleaners in Bulacan Schools to Combat Flood Water

At the onset of rainy season, low lying areas are always prone to floods. And we know that floods are harbinger of diseases and we don't want that to happen especially if there is a school nearby.

The sad part is, the location of the school is lower than the nearby house and establishments and that makes it difficult for the school to clean the flooded area.

Recognizing the need to offer assistance and because there is also a dengue outbreak in the metropololis, the RIDGID Team went to two schools in Bulacan to donate wet and dry vacuum cleaners that can suck water left by heavy rains.
