Drinking Water Stations are an Ideal Fit

When you apply for the Community Fund, it’s important to look at projects that align with the fund’s objectives. Drinking water stations are an ideal fit. Drinking fountains address the key criteria set by the fund. Here’s why:

Positive and Lasting Benefits to the Gold Coast Community

Drinking water stations promote hydration, health, and accessibility to clean water. This provides a lasting benefit to residents and visitors alike.

Enhanced Community Operations

Drinking water stations are an infrastructure improvement that enhances community operations. The fountains serve as community gathering points, fostering social inclusion. They also promote a sense of community by providing a space for people of all ages and backgrounds to meet, socialise, and engage in discussions while staying refreshed.

Sustainability Encouraged and Promoted

Encouraging the use of refillable water bottles at stations helps reduce reliance on single-use plastic bottles. This aligns with sustainability goals by minimising plastic waste and promoting eco-friendly practices.
