Camp Douglas, WI - Lynxx Networks and 3RT Networks donated 2,000 reusable water bottles to area schools, including the districts of Mauston, New Lisbon, Tomah, West Salem, and Aquinas schools in La Crosse. The donations were made to school districts that are existing customers of Lynxx Networks and 3RT Networks.  

With school districts across the nation turning off water fountains in their buildings for safety purposes in the wake of COVID-19, many students have been asked to bring a reusable water bottle to use throughout the school day. However, since there are days that students will forget or misplace their water bottle, or come from a home where a reusable water bottle for school is not an option due to finances, Lynxx Networks and 3RT Networks wanted to help in a small way by supplying school offices with reusable bottles in the event that a student needed one.  

“One of our employees saw a social media post from a local school district reminding parents and students to bring a water bottle for school, and this triggered the idea of purchasing and donating water bottles,” said Lynxx Networks CEO Jim Costello. “We started calling the school districts that we serve to see if they’d be interested in receiving water bottle donations, and if so, how many they needed. We ended up placing an order of 2,000 reusable water bottles to cover the requests from of all our schools.”  

Lynxx Networks and 3RT Networks employees hand delivered the bottles to schools.  

Costello said the goal of donating the water bottles was to send the message to our area schools that we stand with them and support them.  

 “Our teachers and administrators are navigating a very different school year, with extra demands on school staff,” said Costello. “By helping to provide an item that students will need every day, this is a way for us to support our local administrators, teachers and students, and help to ease the burden of at least one of the new pieces of this school year.”

Their focus is west-central Wisconsin, but through partnerships, Lynxx Networks and 3RT Networks are able to offer services both state and nation-wide.
