READING, PA- Olivet Boys & Girls Clubs received a refreshing donation Monday.
The Coca-Cola Co. donated 2,800 cases of Smartwater to the clubs.
“This is definitely going to help during the summer to keep the kids hydrated,” said Chelsey Reichelt, marketing coordinator for Olivet. “We will not have to buy water for a while.”
The gift will save the club an estimated $30,000, she said.
The majority of the donation is being stored at Lentz Milling Co.’s location in Fleetwood, said Ted Simes, director of operations at Lentz.
A portion of the donation was presented Monday at Lentz’s distribution center in Reading to Olivet kids from the Clinton Street location.
Lentz is storing the water at no cost to the clubs, Simes said.
The donation will help quench the thirsts of kids in the similarly named SMART Moves program, Reichelt said.
In the program, which promotes exercise, healthy lifestyles and drug-abuse prevention, kids focus on skills, mastery and resistance training, or SMART.
The water will also be available for summer camp programs and members at the seven club Reading locations and the one in Pottstown, Reichelt said.
