“The Perfect Practice Award is our way of recognizing individuals or a company
who exemplify quality leadership, commitment to the community, and having an
impact on the lives of kids who need it the most. United Water has been a
tremendous supporter and is also one of the Foundation’s first national
partners,” said Steve Salem, President of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation helps build character and teaches critical life
lessons to disadvantaged youths living in America's most distressed
communities through baseball and softball-themed programs. Ripken family
members established the foundation in 2001 in memory of former Baltimore
Orioles manager and coach Cal Ripken, Sr., who died in 1999.

“We are honored by the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, which embodies the true
spirit of community service and selflessness,” said Bertrand Camus, Chief
Executive Officer of United Water. “Like the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation,
United Water employees share a culture of caring that extends to disadvantaged
youths in the communities we serve.”

United Water’s relationship with the foundation began in 2009. Since that
time, United Water employees have teamed up with Boys & Girls Club staff
members in Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan to
provide outreach to disadvantaged youths.
