Youth agency asks for water bottles
Pulaski County's Youth Services Department is asking for donations of water bottles for summer programs and events, according to a post from the department.
The covid-19 pandemic has put water fountains, normally usable for youths in after-school programming, off limits, the Facebook post said.
According to the post, donations of 8-ounce or smaller water bottles will be welcomed at 201 S. Broadway, Suite 220.
Questions can be directed to Whitney Dobbins at email@example.com or (501) 340-8250, the post said.
