A local bottling company makes a donation to a JPS Elementary School.
Brown Bottling Group has been partnered with Walton Elementary school since 1987. Friday the company presented the school with a thousand dollar check. The school will use the money to buy resources for first-year teachers and to provide rewards to students.
“Today, we’re doing an official check presentation with funds going to the school, and we’re also going to be reading to first-grade students and giving books to first-grade students. So we’re excited about that . They know that I’m here to read but they don’t know that they’re gonna be receiving books,” said Marilyn Williams with Brown Bottling.
Some of the money will also be used to provide treats and rewards for students through the year.
