Allied Eye, an ophthalmic medical practice, and Lipsey Water Company donated water bottles to more than 20 schools in Hamilton County. Allied Eye also donated $2,500 to be used toward the newly established Hamilton County Schools Foundation.

Due to COVID-19, our local schools were forced to shut down their water fountains to slow the spread of the virus. This means that roughly 8,000 students in these 20-plus schools don't have any water supply during school hours.

Allied Eye learned of this dilemma and facilitated community support by organizing a large water donation with Lipsey. The office is proud to have been able to make the water donation happen with Lipsey.
