Kona Community Policing Section Collecting ‘Hydro’ Flasks For Students in Need
During the pandemic, many schools added water filling stations to prevent students from sharing drinking fountains to limit the possibility of exposure to COVID-19.
Because of that change, many schools added to their student supply lists water bottles and “hydro” flasks, which can be costly and not feasible for many families on a budget.
The Hawai‘i Police Department wants to help.
In partnership with the nonprofit organization Aloha Maps, the Kona Community Policing Section is conducting a drive to collect “hyrdo” flasks for schools and students in need in Kona.
New “hydro” flasks or refillable water bottles can be dropped off at the the Kealakehe Police Station until the end of November. The refillable bottles and flasks will then be distributed to the schools and students most in need.
