Lowman Hill gets new fountain with help from Kaw Valley Bank

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Students at one Topeka school received a donation that will not only quench their thirst, but also help the environment.

Lowman Hill Elementary cut the ribbon Friday for their new water fountain - complete with a reusable bottle filler!

Students were raising money for the filler. When Kaw Valley Bank heard about the kids goal, they stepped in and donated the needed amount, and more.

Craig Heideman, president of Kaw Valley Bank, discussed why the bank stepped in and helped.

“Summertime, let’s have a water fountain at the start of school,” Heideman said. “Then after we made that decision, one of our staff members decided on her own to donate the water bottles here at Lowman Hills, we we’re really excited about that.”

Each student received a water bottle and Kaw Valley received a special gift: a painting made by the students for the bank to display.
