Community Council celebrated the addition of a new water bottle filler in the cafeteria this week after months of fundraising and planning.

“They had just discovered that their most recent fundraiser has allowed for them to get one over February break with the help of the facilities,” Community Council adviser Leah Vivirito said. They raised most of the money, $1200, in the fall with Penny Wars during Spirit Week.

“It was a priority for the Community Council because students every day use plastic water bottles, and they always get thrown into a landfill somewhere,” Community Council representative Ben Carme said. Carme set up the task force and oversaw the process.

Carme talked to Director of Facilities Leonard Belli, and they came up with a plan for the facilities team to install it. There was no extra fee for them to install it.

They got a good deal on it, paying less than half the price. The original price was about $4,000.

They chose to install the new fountain in the cafeteria because kids will use it often at lunch. It took about half a day to install it.

Many schools, such as Marlborough and Assabet, already have them.  

“With having the fillers, it will better the earth and the student body,” Carme said.
