'Green' Heat Relief Provided to Agoura High Football Players

A local Realtor and fundraising group have collaborated to offer hydration to Charger team.


August 20, 2012/ Community Funding Solutions and The McLaughlin Group have collaborated to furnish a much-needed Hydration Station for the Agoura High School Football Foundation. Players who have been sweltering through practices and scrimmages in the recent triple digit heat can now hydrate from a portable water source without using bottled water or plastic cups. The Hydration Station keeps the water cool and provides six flex hoses that the players can use to douse or drink for relief from the heat and potentially harmful de-hydration.

“We like the portability and design of this Hydration Station as well as the advantage of not throwing away hundreds of plastic water bottles during practices,” said Matthew Breddan, president of the foundation. ”The students love it and it feels good to be doing something so “green” and healthy for our players.”

“When Community Funding Solutions approached us about becoming a part of their giving program we responded immediately," said Dave McLaughlin, from The McLaughlin Group. "I played football for Agoura football. I’ve been in that heat and it puts a big smile on my face to know we are providing some relief.”
