National Guard distributes water to families

GUYTON, Ga. – The National Guard posted up at South Effingham High School’s parking lot to pass out water to people in the area.

Effingham County has contaminated water along with many other counties.

Each family gets one case of bottled water to drink and cook food with.

The National Guard also helped people throughout the community Monday in more ways than just handing out water.

“We’ve been helping out with debris cleanup, so we’ve been at the local recycling center,” Lt. Bethany Kapper, with the National Guard, said. “Just helping locals.”

Duracell also showed up, unannounced, with a truck to help people charge phones and hand out batteries for flashlights.
