This project is super important for the health and well being of our kids. My daughter has expressed that she and her schoolmates dislike the drinking water at school." Nobody drinks it mom. It's not ...just me." I have tried the water from their drinking fountains and it tastes, and smells like chlorine mixed with metal. My daughter dos'nt drink at all surfing the day. I worry because it is Spring and it's going to get hot and the kids will be running around outside playing and doing P.E. class. It would be fantastic to have fresh clean water at school. You know just writing it down feels like I'm trying to win a prize for my Daughter's school. However, it's not a prize, it should be a right our children have. I know that IF we get a hydration station my Daughter won't suffer from headaches and fatigue due to dehydration. Thank you United Way for all you do. See More

What a fantastic day and the team at St. John's Program for Change we're the best. They transformed a simple empty and bare room into an incredible place where children's can rest, read or play games.... It was truly amazing. See More
