The Keep the North Country Smiling Coalition, made up of health and human service agencies from Oswego, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties, will soon be distributing reusable water bottles to schools across Jefferson County.
The county’s Public Health Service worked with the Council for a Strong America to identify the school districts that would receive the water bottles, which were donated by Fidelis Care.
A total of 4,700 reusable water bottles will be donated to the Knickerbocker, Ohio, and North elementary schools in the Watertown City School District, Black River Elementary and Carthage Middle School in Carthage, and the Sackets Harbor, Lyme, Alexandria, and LaFargeville school districts.
Fidelis Care, the North Country Family Health Center and the Jefferson County Public Health Service will be delivering the water bottles throughout February to promote National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Anyone seeking additional information can contact the Jefferson County Public Health Service at 315-786-3710.
