Savannah, Ga.-based Enmarket sponsored a coalition of local businesses who donated 51,000 reusable 20-ounce translucent water bottles to returning students in Savannah-Chatham and Effingham County public schools. The effort was intended to help ensure a safer experience for students since state guidelines recommend that schools turn off school water fountains during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Enmarket became the project's principal sponsor, providing 32,000 bottles to be distributed to 14,000 students. The retailer joined the project's initial sponsors, Thomas & Hutton, Savannah Technical College, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, ServiceMaster of Savannah, the YMCA of Coastal Georgia and Healthy Savannah.
