First Baptist Church (FBC), Cassville, has donated 425 refillable water bottles to students at Cassville Intermediate School. In an effort to increase sanitation on campus, drinking fountains are currently turned off. All students are encouraged to bring a refillable water container and access the water filling stations available throughout the school buildings. Donated water bottles will be given to those students who have forgotten their water container for the day.
