Have you ever been so hot that you just craved water so much that you would do just about anything to have just one sip? Well, this may be an extreme analogy, but Southern Indiana Power’s water bottle program is doing just that! The bottled water program provides each local high school with 48 cases of water to sell or use as it pleases.
For instance, Heritage Hills High School’s staff uses its bottled water to sell at its commencement ceremony each year and gives away bottles at its Kid’s First event in August.
Perry Central’s band and FFA programs benefit from selling the water bottles off campus, and in return, they use the profit to help fund their yearly activities. New this year, Perry Central will offer the bottled water at its concession stands during school events to give money back to other groups at the high school.
Tell City High School cannot get enough water bottles each year because they sell like “hotcakes” at sporting events. The money goes back to the athletic deparment.
Last but not least, South Spencer High School uses the bottled water for its WHOO (We Help Our Own) carnival. High school students and staff work the carnival for the middle students who attend. The carnival consists of food booths and games. The proceeds from the carnival go into a special account that helps benefit students in times of need with things such as clothes, supplies, shoes and even prom.
It’s amazing to see how just one bottle of water can help our schools and support their various groups!
