Arrow Stage Lines is a company that strives to be the most innovative and passionate charter operation out there. But more importantly it is a company that is focused on change, and they are proud to partner with YOU to be making a difference in every charter booked. Arrow Stage Lines is committed to working in and towards a better world, and with your help; we are doing that right now.
Arrow Stage Lines is a company focused on customer service, reliability, excellent drivers, and helping our customers experience the journey. While that is the main business focus, they also are focused on changing lives and being a part of creating a better world. That is why Arrow Stage Lines is focused on getting clean water to the world. So why “water”?
The answer is simple. 1 in 10 people in our world live without clean water. That equates to around 663 million people. Some may think that a number like that isn’t too big considering there are billions living in our world but in fact, 663 million people is more than double the population in the United States. Can you imagine living without clean water, and being afraid of drinking it because it may make you sick, or even worse, you fear for your life each time you take a drink? In 2016, Arrow Stage Lines rallied around the idea of creating the Hero Project. The vision of the project was aimed at helping create a positive global impact. The Hero Project, focused on helping provide a better quality of life for those less fortunate, selected Charity Water, an international nonprofit organization, as the 2016 charity of choice for the Hero Project.
“It’s easy to take the little things for granted, and when it comes to water, I believe it is our duty to do our part in providing clean water throughout the world” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “The Hero Project is one very important initiative here at Arrow and we are proud to be a part of it.”
Charity Water works with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place they work, whether it’s a well, a piped system, a BioSand Filter, or a system for harvesting rainwater. With every water point they fund, their partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.
The Hero Project does its part with the help of Arrow Stage Lines’ customers. Each time an Arrow Stage Lines charter bus is booked, Arrow Stage Lines’ donates a portion of those funds to the Hero Project. In October, Arrow Stage Lines donated over $2,800 to the Hero Project. To date, the Hero Project has raised over $19,000 to help fight the world water crisis. This is all thanks to Arrow Stage Lines’ customers.
“I cannot imagine having to walk many miles just for a drink of clean water,” said Arrow Stage Lines CEO, Steve Busskohl. “I am so pleased and proud that we can all work together in making a difference in our world.”
Hero Project funds have been put to work in Uganda, a region rebounding after two decades of civil war. Uganda has a national population of roughly 37 million people with 19.5% of them living below the poverty line. Hero Project funds were used to impact rural areas where the lack of sanitation is around 83% and 24% of the population lack access to water.
The Arrow Stage Lines’ Hero Project is only successful because of the company’s amazing customers who choose to experience confidence with their charter bus service.
Arrow Stage Lines has opened phase 3 of the Hero Project for private donations. If you would like to contribute to the cause, please click here, or charter your next trip with Arrow Stage Lines and know that a donation will be made to help impact positive global change.
