Roanoke City Schools gets a donation of 10,000 bottles of water
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - There will be lots of changes that students will have to get used to for the upcoming school year. One of those changes includes not being allowed to use the water fountains.
It’s just another measure the district is taking to limit the spread of germs. To make sure kids have access to water throughout the day, though, Betsy Thomas with State Farm stepped up and has donated 10,000 bottles of water to the school system.
They were dropped off at William Fleming high school Thursday morning.
“We didn’t know if this was a type of year where they needed pencils and notebook paper, so we thought if water fountains are off limits, water would be a better way to go this year,” said Thomas.
The bottles will be distributed evenly among the schools.
