Burke County Public Schools recently received a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation to help provide sanitation products to our daycares and food distribution sites.

The $3,000 grant will help BCPS to purchase hand sanitizer for our daycare sites and the schools that are providing meals to students. Using hand sanitizer is one of the recommended ways to prevent being exposed to COVID-19. Students and staff will benefit from this grant by being able to use the hand sanitizer while at daycare and for the child nutrition staff who are serving meals.

Superintendent Dr. Larry Putnam said, “Thank you to the generosity of Duke Energy for helping to provide a way to help our students and staff stay healthy during the coronavirus outbreak. This is just one of the many ways that I see our community coming together to support one another. As always, our first priority is the safety and well-being of our students.”
