Trusted ER donates reusable water bottles to children in need as COVID-19
DALLAS, FORTH WORTH — Trusted ER is supplying 500 20-ounce reusable water bottles for students at Bellaire Elementary from kindergarten to fifth grade for the upcoming school year.
With drinking fountains shut down and removed from the school’s campus due to COVID-19, children at Bellaire Elementary are facing limited access to water during school hours. The need for clean drinking water remains critical.
The initiative comes just in time as Bellaire Elementary is seeking assistance in providing students with reusable water bottles.
According to the CDC, it’s important to provide access to drinking water in schools because it not only gives students a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages, but it also “helps to increase students’ overall water consumption, maintain hydration and reduce energy intake if substituted for sugar-sweetened beverages.” Having access to drinking water also supports adequate hydration which can improve cognitive function in children and adolescents.
