Friendship UMC Donates Water Bottles to Sherman ISD

Friend Church members drop off water bottle donations The Friendship United Methodist Church (FUMC) donated more than 500 refillable water bottles for Sherman ISD students. Pastor Roy Spore and the congregation plan to donate more. The church has been generous in donating to the district in recent years. 

"This year when the time came, rather than assume what they needed again, we contacted them and because of the crazy situation we are in right now, it was water bottles," Pastor Spore expressed.

COVID-19 has forced the district to implement different health and safety practices, including shutting down the use of water fountains. FUMC’s donation will allow many students to have another essential item for school. The students will also get to choose their own bottle. 

Additional donations were given by Grand Central Station and Walmart’s optical center in Denison.
