Quenching thirst

The Rethink Your Drink: Water’s Cool at School program had another successful year.

The Delta Dental Foundation (DDF) partnered with the Michigan Education Special Services Association (MESSA) to commit $300,000 to install new hydration stations in 104 schools in Michigan. And the DDF invested $100,000 in Indiana for 23 schools.

Since the Water’s Cool at School launch in 2016, 133,761 students and staff in 219 schools across Michigan, Ohio and Indiana are now benefiting from clean, cold, filtered water and water bottles donated by the DDF.

The DDF also committed to installing hydration stations in five community centers in Michigan and Indiana in 2018:

  • Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum in Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing, Michigan
  • Longway Planetarium in Flint, Michigan
  • Woldumar Nature Center in Lansing, Michigan
  • Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in Indiana
