Bottled water sales at concession stands help school funds

The Washington Times-Herald

---- — Once again, spectators buying bottled water at high school sporting events in the Daviess-Martin County REMC service area are part of a unique marketing effort. The REMC donated 252 cases of bottled water to local high schools to help in concessions fund raising. Each bottle is labeled with the co-op name and phrase, “Committed to community.”

“We saw in this program a special way to connect not only with our current members but with young people who are our members of tomorrow,” said Janet Chestnut, Manager of Communications/Member Relations at the REMC. “This is a great opportunity to further our pledge to education and enhance the Touchstone Energy value of commitment to the community.”

The schools will retain all proceeds from the sale of the water and have the potential to raise over $1,000 each. This is the 11th year the REMC has donated the bottled water to the schools.
