Water for Wells

Since 2014, Water for Wells has been our way of giving back and doing our part. It’s a simple program that allows Canyon Creek and our guests to help provide clean drinking water to those in need.

Every time you purchase a bottle of our in-house filtered still or sparkling water, the net proceeds of that purchase are donated to Wells of Hope, our partner charity. These proceeds have raised $132,000 in charitable funds in the past two years alone.

We at Canyon Creek have personally funded two trips for our very own team members to visit the rural region of Jalapa, Guatemala. In addition to building wells, we also helped the community in a number of ways:

  • Carried over 5000 mud bricks to build three homes
  • Built two classrooms and painted two schools
  • Served food to dozens of families living in poverty
  • Gave clothing, backpacks, school supplies, glasses, sewing supplies, toys, sports equipment, books, landscaping tools, and more

To see our experience and the positive work we have done in the region, please watch the video series below. We look forward to lending some hands and hearts every year with a new group from Canyon Creek.


It is a life changing experience for not only the people of Jalapa, but our team members as well. The trip strengthens their desire for change and to provide hope in the developing world. In turn, their desire for change inspires their friends, families, and colleagues to make a difference.

Our partner, Wells of Hope, remains committed to helping those in need attain the life-giving necessity of clean water, as well as education, health care, and community support in Guatemala. To learn more about the amazing work being done and how you can get involved, please visit wellsofhope.com.
