PS 188 Water Bottle Project!



The PS 188 Student Council is participating in the Wellspring for the World project.  The mission of Wellspring for the World is to provide safe drinking water for the people of the world. The project will raise money to provide safe drinking water for the people of Mali, Ghana, and other areas of the world.  The cost of a drinking well is $5000.  To help with this project, Student Council will be collecting 5 cent deposit plastic bottles (water, soda, etc.) and 5 cent cans (NO GLASS) to raise money to build water wells.   Please do not send in Gatorade or Vitamin Water bottles because they are not 5 cent deposit bottles.

The bottles will be collected in the gym.  Thank you for your support of the PS 188 Student Council.
