GREAT FALLS — Staying hydrated during the school day is now a little easier for students at Longfellow Elementary School thanks to a Great Falls business owner.

On Friday, the owner of Teriyaki Madness, Aaron Weissman, handed out reusable water bottles to each student.

His sister works at the school and told him the water fountains were all shut off because of coronavirus.

Weissman said, "We're a small, locally owned store in Great Falls. We don't survive without our community. We really appreciate everyone in Great Falls. I'm born and raised in Great Falls, a product of Great Falls Public Schools myself, and I really thought that it would be a nice thing to do."

He’s now challenging other businesses to help out schools.
