Water’s cool at school!

Providing access to drinking water throughout the school day gives students a healthy alternative to sugary beverages like soda pop, and sports/juice drinks. Drinking plenty of water can help combat obesity, increase energy levels and may improve students’ cognitive functions. Further, if fluoridated, drinking water also plays an important role in preventing cavities.

As part of its Rethink Your Drink campaign, the Delta Dental Foundation has committed $100,000 to REPLACE existing drinking fountains at a number of selected schools in Ohio with new Elkay water fountain/bottle filling stations installed by Balfrey & Johnston, Inc. of Oak Park, MI.
